Retired Colorado State Senator Ted Harvey has always had a passion for protecting the Constitution and the unborn, and promoting America’s conservative values. At the age of 22, Ted received a political appointment to serve in the White House of President Ronald Reagan, which ignited his passion for traditional conservatism.
After returning home, Ted quickly became involved in Colorado politics, working as a staffer in the Colorado State House and then as the Program Director of the Independence Institute, a Denver-based think tank. Ted also served as the District Office Manager for Representative Joel Hefley (R-CO).
In December 2001, through a vacancy election, Ted was elected to the Colorado House of Representatives and became a conservative champion inside the State House. He was re-elected in both 2002 and 2004, and then elected to the Colorado State Senate in 2006 and 2010.
Ted’s patriotic work continues today. He is a founding member and Chairman of the Stop Hillary PAC, re-named the Committee to Defend the President following the election of President Trump in 2016. It is now one of the largest pro-Trump super PACs in the country: Under Ted’s leadership, the Committee has spent more than $11 million in Independent Expenditures to support Republican causes, while contributing over $365,000 directly to Republican candidates.
Ted is also one of Colorado’s delegates to the 2020 Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
