Senator Janice Rich Endorses Jeff Hurd for US Congress

Grand Junction, CO – Today, Senator Janice Rich endorses Jeff Hurd for U.S. Congress in the GOP primary.

“Today, I am proud to endorse Jeff Hurd to represent us in Congress here in the 3rd congressional district. I have known Jeff since he was a young man. I have also known several members of his family. I know Jeff to be a man of integrity who would make an outstanding hardworking congressman. As a deducated family man, he shares our values of western and southern Colorado, and will fight for us because he is one of us. Jeff will fight to combat out of control inflation and harmful DC economic policies, work hard to protect our water, and push for energy independence. I know Jeff will alwasy put Colorado first, serving the district with humility and sincerity,” stated State Senator, Janice Rich.

Jeff Hurd said, “I have known Senator Rich for years, both personally and through her dedicated public service to Mesa County. Senator Rich’s personal character and her dedication to Colorado are an example of an inspiration for me. I am truly honored to have her support.”

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.
