DENVER — They say there are no friends in politics — but the five women behind Colorado’s recent state senate shakeup are doing their best to defy that. Five friends are now state senators in the first female-led majority caucus in the country. Their nickname: The Fab Five.

Kerry Donovan, Jessie Danielson, Faith Winter, Tammy Story, and Brittany Pettersen have been co-workers, mentors, and friends to one another for nearly a decade. Each of the five women won their Colorado state senate seats in closely contested races this cycle. And when they were sworn in in January, they flipped the state senate from red to blue for the first time in five years.

“This group of women walked into something they knew was going to be an incredible challenge, and rose to it,” said Donovan.

The five women have known each other for years, both professionally and personally.
