The first black congressman to represent Colorado, Joe Neguse. A record number of female lawmakers — 46 — in the statehouse. The state’s first transgender lawmaker, Brianna Titone. The landmark headlines raise the question: Why does it matter which gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation politicians are?
