Senate Minority Leader Paul Lundeen and Senator Barbara Kirkmeyer Endorse Jeff Hurd for Congress

Grand Junction, CO – Today Senate Minority Leader Paul Lundeen and Senator Barbara Kirkmeyer issued the following statements promoting their support for Jeff Hurd:

“I am proud to endorse Jeff Hurd for Congress to represent CO-03. It is time to turn the page on the primary and unify in order to hold the seat. Jeff is a hard working and sincere individual who will fight for the important needs of the people of the third congressional district. He will strengthen our agricultural producers, protect our energy producers, fight for Colorado water, and always ensure that western and southern Colorado has a seat at the table. Jeff will represent us honorably and is a true leader of character.” – Statement from Senate Minority Leader Paul Lundeen

“I am excited to endorse Jeff Hurd for Congress in CO-3. Southern and western Colorado need a strong Republican who can unify the party and hold the seat against Adam Frisch and the liberals. Jeff will fight for our state and the district, making sure to secure our border, protect our water, fight for our agricultural producers, and push for energy independence. Jeff is hardworking and a leader of character — he will always represent us honorably.”  –Statement from Senator Barbara Kirkmeyer

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.
