After having worked on many state and local Democratic campaigns, and as an intern for Colorado Rep. David Skaggs,[1] Postal was elected to represent Colorado on the Democratic National Committee in 2004. He is vice-chair of the DNC's Western Caucus.[2] Postal bought into the HCM group, as a principal in October 2006, which in early 2007 was renamed Strategies,LLC.

After Richardson dropped out of the presidential race, Postal was heavily lobbied by the campaigns of both New York Sen. Hillary Clinton and Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, including personal calls from Bill and Chelsea Clinton and Obama supporter Federico Peña.[4]

Postal announced his intention to vote for Obama[5] shortly before Colorado's February caucuses,[6] after seeing Obama speak in Denver, Colorado.[7] Postal's support of Obama in Colorado's caucuses was balanced by that of his wife, Jen Evans, a Clinton supporter. Postal's spouse, Jennifer "Jen" L. Evans, is a health attorney formerly counsel for Gambro and DaVita, she is the Deputy Director Finance and Operations, Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, currently battling allegations of whistleblowing violations.[8] The two have three children — Carly, Jackson, and Calvin.[9]
