Can a woman win the Third Congressional District? This question maybe would've been relevant in the 1950s, but with powerfully able women leaders as ambassadors to the UN, as justices of the Supreme Court, as governors and senators -- it's a question of yesteryear. The very question suggests that our district is a behind-the-times and bigoted place. The question should insult us, every one. The crucial reality of this race rests in electing a representative with both the passion and know-how to get the job done in Congress.
This district depends on a change-out of our congressional seat to get our fair share of the 21st century economy; it depends on smart science to answer the consequences of climate change; it depends on strengthening equal access to health care. This needed action depends on the skill and fortitude to get it done. In Diane Mitsch Bush, we have a three-term member of the Colorado House, so respected that she was chosen to head committees, so respected that she won awards such as Legislator of the Year in 2017. We must all ask the true question for our common interests: who best knows how to get our work done in Congress? The answer is transparent and real. Getting the vote out to ensure Diane's election is a serious task owned by each citizen in this district.
