Denver, Colo.-, May 14, 2020 | comments

This week, Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) gave Rep. Jason Crow (CO-06) a call to discuss the latest census response rate. Crow’s district has reported a 69.1% response rate to Perlmutter’s 69.3% rate, putting the two districts in second and first place respectively. To date, 61.4% of Colorado households have self-responded to the 2020 Census. 

This isn’t the first time Crow and Perlmutter have engaged in some friendly competition. In December, Crow and Perlmutter were deemed the “Clark Griswolds of Congress” by CPR after a heated holiday office decorating competition. 

Despite their differences, Crow and Perlmutter encourage all Coloradans to respond to the U.S. Census. To do so, please visit:
