BACKLIT: Congressman Ed Perlmutter is all about that base

CONGRESSMAN ED PERLMUTTER is the Democratic US Representative for Colorado’s 7th District. A Colorado native, Perlmutter played baseball in high school as a Jefferson High School Saint in Edgewater. He didn’t stop in high school either, playing on the men’s congressional members team since being elected to Congress in 2007, where every summer the Democrats play the Republicans at the Nationals stadium in Washington DC. Rep. Perlmutter also coaches the women’s congressional members team, where they compete against the media every summer. Perlmutter considers himself a real fan of the nation’s pastime, collecting hats, memorabilia and memories. Portrait by Philip B. Poston/Sentinel
