Dr. Caraveo is the first Latina and first physician elected to Congress in Colorado
Washington, D.C. — Latino Victory Fund congratulated Dr. Yadira Caraveo for winning the historic race for Colorado’s 8th Congressional District. Caraveo is the first Latina and the first physician elected to Congress in Colorado. In addition, Caraveo is the second physician in Congress’ Hispanic delegation.
“Dr. Caraveo’s win is a milestone for Latinos in Colorado and a boost for Latina representation in Congress. The 8th District’s voters elected Dr. Caraveo because she’s a dedicated community leader and legislator who has fought for issues that are more important than ever, including healthcare access, climate change action, and voting rights. She’s also a staunch defender of reproductive rights, and her voice will be of paramount importance in the battle against a national abortion ban. Now that she’s heading to Congress, Coloradoans will have a representative who will ensure their families and communities thrive by focusing on lowering healthcare costs, improving the economy, and creating more jobs. Latino Victory is proud to congratulate Dr. Caraveo for her historic win.”
