Bill Winter (born 1964) was the Democratic candidate in Colorado's 6th congressional district for the United States House of Representatives. He unsuccessfully ran against incumbent Rep. Tom Tancredo.
Winter was an orphan born in Greeley, Colorado, and was not adopted until age five due to a heart condition. He was raised in Littleton, Colorado. He graduated from Littleton High School at the age of seventeen and enlisted in a Marine Reserve Artillery unit, and served for four years.
Following his service he attended the University of Colorado at Boulder. He then began a second term of service by joining the U.S. Navy, where he was chosen "Outstanding Recruit" in his basic training company, and served by working on F-14 fighters at TOPGUN, the NAS Miramar flight school in San Diego, and on several aircraft carriers. Following his service he continued working at TOPGUN as a civilian contractor with Lockheed Martin.
Winter graduated from Chapman University and received a degree in Law from The Catholic University of America's Columbus School of Law in Washington, DC, after which he began working at the Justice Department, and on Sen. John McCain's Commerce Committee staff. Winter practiced law in North Carolina, but left his firm and returned to his native Colorado to practice law, teach high school science, and coach football in Douglas County.
