Why elect Diane Mitsch Bush to run against Rep. Scott Tipton in 2018? I’ve met Diane. She’s smart, tough and gets things done.
She supports universal health care and is rated a champion by the Colorado Foundation for Universal Healthcare. She’s taken the No Fossil Fuel MoneyPledge. She works for public education, environmental protection and economic equality for all.
She was named Legislator of the Year by the Truckers Union, Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, Colorado Livestock Association and Conservation Colorado.
That’s an admirable cross section of the 3rd Congressional District. Her endorsements include Progressive Democrats of America, Bill Ritter and Colorado AFL-CIO.
She’s a principled representative who has stood up to the National Rifle Associaton, the oil and gas lobby, and will stand up against the Trump agenda. She’s also a skilled legislator with experience to gets things done the moment she steps into office.
Some try to imply that after five consecutive wins for public office as a two-term county commissioner and three-term state legislator, Diane is a career politician. Rather, Diane is a career public servant. Contrast this with one of her opponents, who has not won even one election, grew up on a ranch, is now a development and municipal lawyer and likely wants to become a career politician.
We need to vote for the candidate who has proven her ability to win, proven her dedication to the democratic process, proven her service to her constituents, and is the only candidate who can unseat Rep. Scott Tipton in the 3rd Congressional District. Vote for Diane Mitsch Bush.
