PUEBLO, Colorado — Diane Mitsch Bush, the Democratic nominee in the race for Colorado's 3rd Congressional District, held a virtual campaign rally with supporters in Pueblo on Saturday. The former state representative from Routt County said if she's elected, she plans to roll up her sleeves and, "get to work reclaiming our democracy, recovering from COVID and rebuilding our communities."
"One of the things that's always struck me about Pueblo, about the people, about the organizations is grit and compassion, effectiveness and empathy," Mitsch Bush said. "Those are things that I try to embody as well."
Mitch Busch said she plans to introduce bills investing in national infrastructure needs such as transportation, broadband internet access, and water and electric systems. She also said she will work to protect the Affordable Care Act and supports efforts to bring medical supply manufacturers back to America.
Mitsch Bush faces Republican restaurant owner Lauren Boebert of Rifle in the general election. Boebert unseated incumbent Congressman Scott Tipton in the June primary election.
