Democratic challenger Jason Crow has defeated Republican incumbent Rep. Mike Coffman in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District, part of a “blue wave” that flipped leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives to the Democrats.

The district covers the eastern edge of the Denver metro area—including all of Aurora and parts of cities like Centennial, Highlands Ranch, Englewood, Parker and Brighton.

This is the first time since the district was created in 1983 that a Democrat has won the seat.

On election night, Crow spoke at the Democrats’ watch party at the Westin Denver Downtown hotel.
