7-30-2014: Last week I received some exciting news that I wanted to share with you. I have been endorsed again by the state’s chamber of commerce, the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry (CACI)! CACI is the respected business organization that represents most of the top businesses in our state.
I was proud to earn their endorsement two years ago when I first ran to represent you in the legislature. To earn their endorsement for a second time is truly humbling.

Denver Post, October 20, 2012 (emphasis added):
House District 47: Republican Clarice Navarro-Ratzlaff has dubbed herself the pro-business — and particularly small-business — candidate, and no wonder: the southeast Colorado native started her own business with her husband and can tick off a number of relatives who run small businesses as well.
Her Democratic opponent, Chuck Rodosevich, is a capable candidate in his own right with experience in state government, but we think Navarro-Ratzlaff would bring a needed perspective to the statehouse.
Pueblo Chieftain, October 10, 2012 (emphasis added):
Representative District 47. Seeking this seat are Chuck Rodosevich, a Democrat, and Clarice Navarro-Ratzlaff.
Mr. Rodosevich, a former head of employment for the state Department of Human Services, stresses his years of experience dealing with the Legislature as an asset. Mrs. Navarro-Ratzlaff underlined her experience on Las Animas City Council, being a teacher, and most recently, working for U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Colo. She is pro business and has a good sense for this region.
Thus we urge voters in District 47 to vote for Clarice Navarro-Ratzlaff.
