He served as a Republican member of the Colorado Senate from 1987 to 1992. He was the primary organizer of Coloradans Back in Charge, a grassroots initiative that led to Colorado being the first state to impose term limits on the governor, state legislature and congressional delegation.
He left the state Senate early in 1992 to pursue the open seat in the United States Senate created by the decision of Democrat Tim Wirth to forgo a bid for a second term. Considine was defeated in the 1992 general election by Democrat Ben Nighthorse Campbell. Campbell later became a Republican while still in office and was re-elected as a Republican in 1998.
Terry Considine was inducted into the Colorado Business Hall of Fame by Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain and the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce in 2017.
