It says they will "rise above the rhetoric and negativity and focus on finding solutions." Sadie Babits talks with Tony Gagliardi.

Later, Congressmen Mike Coffman and Jared Polis join the discussion. Coffman is a Republican whose district includes Littleton and Castle Rock. Polis is a Democrat who represents Boulder and mountain communities west of Denver.
