Kerry Donovan, Tammy Story, Faith Winter, Jessie Danielson and Brittany Pettersen, “The Fab Five,” are all longtime friends, serving as bridesmaids in each other’s weddings, and now they’ve all been elected as state senators in Colorado.
The women supported each other during their campaign, Winter shared while speaking to People. She said:
Through the campaign, the five of us were very supportive of each other. We had several text chains where we would check in with one another and see how we were doing.”
If a particularly bad ad or piece of mail came out. We would reassure each other on the text chain, “Have you seen the mail? It’s so awful, how are you doing?”
Danielson shared that the wins were “pretty amazing,” and her and her friends “were all in it together.”
Donovan discussed how it was important to have friends who were going through the same struggles, who could relate with the difficult parts of the journey.
Our families are incredibly supportive, but it’s not their name on the thousands of pieces of mail going out or on the TV. So being able to talk to them, and they are going through the exact same thing, it was so supportive.
