Senator Bob Gardner and Senator Larry Liston Endorse Jeff Hurd for Congress

Grand Junction, CO – Today, Senator Bob Gardner and Senator Larry Liston issued the following statement promoting their support for Jeff Hurd:

“We are proud to endorse Jeff Hurd for Congress in the 3rd district. Jeff is a leader of character who will work hard to deliver on issues important to western and southern Colorado. He will deliver for our farming and ranching families, fight to protect our water, push for energy independence, and always put Colorado first. Jeff is a man of integrity, whose behavior and conduct represents Colorado values, and he will work hard to always deserve our support.” – Statement from Senator Bob Gardner and Senator Larry Liston

Jeff Hurd said, “I greatly appreciate the support from Senator Gardner and Senator Liston as they truly understand the value of hard working public service to improve the quality of life for constituents. These Senators have confidence that I will deliver smart, thoughtful leadership for our district and defend our conservative values.” 

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.
