Currently, Colorado has two Democratic members of the U.S. Senate, a total of seven members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 65 members of the Colorado House of Representatives and 35 members of the Colorado Senate. As of September 2013, Colorado is one of 13 Democratic state government trifectas.''</p></td></tr>
