Stephens won re-election in the 2012 election for the Colorado House of Representatives, District 19. Redistricting moved her into the 19th district where she defeated the current incumbent Marsha Looper in the Republican primary on June 26, 2012.
|Colorado House of Representatives, District 19 Republican Primary, 2012|
|Amy Stephens Incumbent||59.5%||7,458|
|Marsha Looper Incumbent||40.5%||5,068|
This pairing caused some tension in the Statehouse as Looper co-sponsored a bill repealing the act that established the Colorado Health Care Benefits Exchange, which Stephens sponsored in 2011; Stephens labeled this move as "political posturing," while Looper sought to associate the Exchange program with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act -- commonly known simply as 'the health care law' or, more pejoratively, 'Obamacare'. She defeated Timothy Shawn Biolchini (C) and Alan MacGregor Bassett (L) in the general election on November 6, 2012.
Stephens ran for re-election to the 20th District seat in 2010. She had no opposition. The general election took place on November 2, 2010.
Stephens raised $33,770 for her campaign, while Hejtmanek raised $7,246.
