“Mitsch Bush has not just had to negotiate within the Democratic Party to achieve the desired outcomes for her constituents, but across the aisle, often between rural and urban interests. Identifying the middle and bringing both sides together is what D.C. needs.” Read full endorsement here >>

Durango HeraldEndorsement

“[Diane] developed a reputation as someone who could be trusted, who often appeared as a co-signer to bipartisan bills that had been hammered out during negotiations with Democratic and Republican lawmakers. Do not dismiss such experience. The leap from citizen to being a member of Congress with no experience in other elected government service is astronomical. Few pull it off. Boebert has no such experience; Mitsch Bush does.” Read full endorsement here >>

Pueblo ChieftanEndorsement

“We think Mitsch Bush will be an excellent representative for Congressional District 3. She is ready and willing to listen to her constituents — be they Democrats, Republicans or independents — and she is transparent and open about her decision-making process.”  Read full endorsement here >>

Denver PostEndorsement

“In Colorado’s legislature she went out of her way to get to know her Republican colleagues and work with them on issues that mattered to their districts. She built relationships with them and treated them with respect and not as enemies.” Read full endorsement here >>

Russ GeorgeFormer CO Speaker of the House (R)

Diane is a legislator dedicated to policy based on facts, not ideology. She is tireless in her work representing Coloradans, is always willing to listen to her constituents’ concerns, and is a champion for the environment. I’ve met very few people who read bills as thoroughly as she does and who require such clear evidence to cast her vote. I am happy to endorse her campaign for U.S. Congress.

Mark UdallFormer U.S. Senator for Colorado

“Serving with Diane in the Colorado State House, I know how passionate and strong she is. Diane has been a champion for our water rights and worked with countless people throughout the state to help create our Colorado Water Plan. As Vice-Chair of the Agriculture Committee she fought for family ranchers and farmers. Diane is known for doing her homework, using evidence not ideology to make policy, and always voting for her constituents, not lobbyists or party leadership. Diane stands up for unions and working people – she always has been our champion and Diane will fight for us in the U.S. House. ”

Daneya EsgarCO State Representative, HD 46 - Pueblo. Chair of the Colorado General Assembly Joint Budget Committee

“Diane Mitsch Bush is a tested and trusted public servant who cares deeply about Colorado. From serving as a Routt County Commissioner, to representing Western Slope communities in the Colorado General Assembly, Diane has a tireless commitment to rural Colorado and always works across the aisle to get things done for Colorado families. In Congress, I know Diane will fight everyday to lower healthcare costs, rebuild our economy, and protect our public lands. We need a pragmatic problem solver like Diane in Washington – that’s why I’m proud to support Diane Mitsch Bush for Congress!”

Phil WeiserColorado Attorney General

Rural Colorado and rural America have become neglected in Washington politics. We are not truly represented or respected. When I became the youngest elected official in Colorado, I encountered dead ends in trying to improve the quality of life for my constituency – I know how difficult it can be. Diane always works for her people and she will build the bridges over which our community can cross. Diane will fight to provide quality jobs, a world-class education, affordable healthcare and incentives for farmers. She will protect our way of life and the environment, and I know that she is the champion we need in Washington!”

Gabrielle AragonFormer Council Member, Town of San Luis in Costilla County

“Diane demonstrated her ability to get things done while she served in the Colorado House of Representatives. I watched her effectiveness and her dedication to her constituents. Diane is the fighter the 3rd CD needs to defend our land, our water, and our public spaces.

Bernie BuescherGrand Junction Attorney, Former CO Secretary of State, Former CO State Representative for Grand Junction, HD 55

“It takes courage to fight for bills that face stiff resistance from within the chamber and from outside forces, so I know that Diane has plenty of courage. Her dedication to public safety and promoting the well-being of our rural communities overpowers all obstacles she faced during her time with me in the state house. I know she will take that same determination to Congress and I am happy to endorse her campaign.”

Millie HamnerSenior Policy Director at Keystone Policy Center, Former CO State Representative, HD 61

“Diane is the best candidate for Congress because she has experience solving the issues that affect Coloradans’ lives and families, particularly in rural communities. We were freshmen legislators in the State House. We both served on the Transportation Committee, of which she was Chair. She worked on a number of excellent transportation bills that contributed to my deep respect for her thoughtfulness and intellect―I’m proud to endorse my once-colleague in her campaign for the U.S. Congress.

Joann GinalColorado State Senator, Fort Collins

“Diane and I were commissioners in different counties on the Western Slope, but we share the same values and commitment to serve all of our constituents. Diane understands the diversity of the 3rd Congressional District and that it is necessary to build consensus. We need to elect Diane – she is the candidate best suited to represent us in Washington.”

Paula SwensonFormer Gunnison County Commissioner

“I’ve known Diane for years–she has always been someone whose convictions translate directly into her work. Congress needs people like her, who listen to their constituents and take time to fully understand policy and its effects, who has a record of working to expand opportunity for all. I’m happy to endorse her.”

Pete LeeColorado State Senator, District 11

“As Speaker of the House, I have worked, debated, and partnered with plenty of excellent legislators, and I know that Diane Mitsch Bush is qualified and worthy of being Colorado’s Congresswoman for our 3rd Congressional District. She will fight for Coloradans’ best interests and is selfless in her dedication to public service.”

KC Becker Speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives

“I have worked with Diane in the Colorado State House on issues ranging from education reform to environmental protections. I’ve seen her dedication to public service firsthand and know that she will be the best person to represent Colorado’s 3rd in Washington D.C. ”

Janet BucknerColorado State Representative, House District 40

“I am proud to represent the Colorado House District previously represented by Diane. It was an honor to follow in her footsteps because her reputation in Colorado is one of bipartisanship, care for her community, and an intense dedication to the facts. She has my support because we need her voice and dedication to her constituents in the US Congress.”

Dylan RobertsColorado State Representative, House District 26

“As a freshman legislator, I was honored to have Diane as my mentor. Her command of the issues, her clear voice and engaging style, and the respect she had from both sides of the aisle were compelling and guided me. Diane will bring those qualities to US Congress and I know she will be a strong voice for Colorado’s 3rd CD.”

Edie HootonColorado State Representative, House District 10

“Diane has done impressive work for the people of Colorado, reaching across the aisle to solve difficult problems for her constituents. We’ve worked together on issues pertinent to rural Coloradans, whether that’s making sure oil and gas companies remain accountable or advocating for public safety by requiring vehicles to have snow tires or chains when traveling on our highways in the winter. Her years of valuable experience will be put to good use when she is elected CD-3’s next Congresswoman.”

Joe SalazarAttorney, Former CO State Representative, HD 31

“Diane and I both served as Routt County Commissioners. While we belonged to opposite parties, we were always willing to work together to solve problems for citizens in our community. I have no doubt that she will be an excellent advocate for all of CD-3 in Congress, so I am honored to endorse her.”

Nancy StahoviakFormer Routt County Commissioner

“I’ve known Diane since she was a County Commissioner. She has proved herself many times to be an advocate for people, not special interests. I founded the Cattlemen’s Land Trust to protect and promote rancher interests, so I know that Diane is a dedicated advocate of family agriculture. I’m confident that she is the best person to represent us in Congress.”

Jay FetcherRancher, Founder of CO Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust

Diane is smart and effective and, having served as a Routt County Commissioner and State Representative, she knows the 3rd Congressional District through and through. While in the legislature, I saw how Diane combined passion with intelligence to create solutions for the people of Colorado. Diane will be an excellent member of Congress!”

Claire LevyExecutive Director - CO Center on Law & Policy, Former State Representative, HD 13

“Diane Mitsch Bush worked tirelessly for Eagle County as our State Representative.  She has in-depth knowledge of the issues facing western Colorado, and is one of the best policy analysts out there.  She goes above and beyond to engage constituents of all political persuasions when considering legislation. Vote Diane Mitsch Bush for US Representative for CD3!”

Kathy Chandler-HenryEagle County Commissioner

“Diane and I were freshmen together in the Colorado House of Representatives, so I know how hard she works for her community. She’ll stand up to lobbyists and put in the effort to understand all repercussions of a bill before casting her vote. I fully endorse her campaign for Congress because she will do more for us than Tipton ever has.”

Michael McLachlanFormer State Representative, HD59, Durango

“Diane is a tireless fighter for the working class of rural and Southern Colorado. I have known Diane for nearly twenty years – she’s a dependable ally for Democrats in our state and stood by my side when I was running campaigns, running for office, or mobilizing people to get out the vote. I endorse her campaign for Congress because we’ve learned from experience that we can rely on her to fight for our shared interests.”
