About Colorado: Northeast Region
Bordering Wyoming, Nebraska and Kansas, the Northeast is multi-faceted. The area spans the rapidly urbanizing Interstate 25 corridor, with its focus on technology and clean energy, to one of the most productive farming and ranching regions in the country. This section of the state contains not only the beauty of the mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park, but the stark openness of the Eastern Plains over which the pioneers traveled to find their fortunes. The history and toughness of these settlers are celebrated in the numerous festivals, fairs, museums and rodeos found throughout the region. Now dotted with wind turbines frequently surrounded by cattle, the region typifies the combination of industries that make Colorado successful and is home to two universities, three community colleges and Northeastern Junior College.

Our constitutional right to be free from "unreasonable searches and seizures" applies regardless of whether we are talking about letters kept in a desk or emails stored online. Even though the way we connect as Americans has changed - with emails, tweets and Facebook replacing more traditional forms of communication - our constitutional right to privacy must remain protected.

Today, as we gather in our communities to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, let's not forget the historical significance of May 5, 1862, when Mexican forces courageously stood their ground against France's attempts to establish its rule in the Americas during the Battle of Puebla.

When I came out in support of marriage equality in August 2011, I joined a small core of 18 senators who publicly stood for progress on that issue. Like many Americans, there was a point when I struggled with accepting the idea of marriage for gay and lesbian couples; I thought perhaps civil unions would be a workable compromise. But over my years in Congress, I have met more and more Coloradans who understand what this issue really boils down to: It is about love and commitment, about basic dignity and about being able to protect your families.
