Former Colorado Lt Governor Jane Bergman Norton Endorses Jeff Hurd for Congress

Grand Junction, CO – Today, Former Colorado Lt Governor, Jane Bergman Norton endorsed Jeff Hurd for Congress.

“Jeff Hurd will be a principled, conservative leader in the U.S. House. His experience working with issues of importance to rural Colorado and the way in which he conducts himself, demonstrates clearly that he’ll represent Colorado’s 3rd District well and will be a strong and serious advocate for his home state. As someone who was born and raised in Western Colorado, I deeply care about the future of rural Colorado. I am pleased to support him,” said Lt Governor Jane Bergman Norton.

Jeff Hurd said, “I am humbled to have the support of Lt Governor Norton in my race for the 3rd congressional district. She has been a leader on so many conservative fights and I’m grateful for her support. As a native of Grand Junction and a fighter for western and southern Colorado, she understands that rural Colorado and our district are being left behind. I promise to deliver for the district and always conduct myself in a way that makes Colorado proud.”

Jeff Hurd is a Colorado native, a husband, a father of five, and an attorney committed to serving his community and improving life in rural Colorado.

He is running for U.S. Congress because he believes western and southern Colorado deserve a sincere and hardworking representative focused more on doing something than being someone. Having grown up in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District and now raising his kids there, Jeff wants to deliver results that will help rural Colorado thrive.

Jeff has built a successful law practice dedicated to rural Colorado. He works with, and for, critical service providers in the state—including electric cooperatives, counties, school districts, fire districts, and broadband providers.

In 2018, he co-authored a key legal brief on behalf of various rural governments and stakeholders to support Amendment 71, which requires any individual or group trying to amend Colorado’s Constitution to show support from all parts of the state.
