Primary recap: Ballots due by Tuesday will decide choices on November ballot
Durango Herald | June 20, 2018
The Democratic ticket for governor includes a particularly strong mix of candidates, including out-going Congressman Jared Polis, former state senator Mike Johnston and former two-term state treasurer Cary Kennedy. And, Colorado’s current lieutenant governor, Donna Lynne, who for two years has worked side by side with Gov. John Hickenlooper and has a significant background in corporate healthcare leadership.
Mitsch Bush able to work with everyone
Aspen Times | Austin Owen | June 19, 2018
One of the many things our current administration is missing is experience. The absence of knowledge around constitutional law, government protocol and basic ethics that is being exhibited in Washington every day is a great shame on our country and we need a representative who will speak up for our values as Coloradans.
Diane Mitsch Bush is by far the most qualified Democratic candidate running for the 3rd Congressional District. She held her seat in the Colorado House of Representatives for four-and-a-half years and served as the chair of the Transportation and Energy Committee and vice chair of the Agriculture, Livestock and Natural Resources Committee. Diane has a record in the Colorado House of working across the aisle to pass legislation in the interest of all Coloradans — farmers, teachers, veterans, small businessmen and women, and students.
Speaking out for Diane
Post Independent | Delbert Parrish | June 15, 2018
It's time for a change in Washington. It's time for us to have a representative who cares more for the people than for party politics and their paycheck. It's time for our representatives to work together, across the aisle. It's time for us, the people, to make that change.
It's time to send Diane Mitsch-Bush to Washington DC to represent the 3rd Congressional District of Colorado.
Diane is My Choice for Congress
Pagosa Daily News | Molly Wickwire-Sante | June 16, 2018
If you believe it’s time to have more female Democratic leaders in Congress, then please read on to see why we should support Diane Mitsch Bush for United States Congress in Colorado District 3. She is on your primary election ballot if you are a registered Democrat or Unaffiliated voter, and she will run against Republican Scott Tipton if she wins the primary.
Here is what stands out to me the most about Diane...
Don’t let a handful of voters make the decisions; vote in the primary by June 26
Vail Daily News | Kay Delanoy | June 19, 2018
As of Saturday, June 16, only 10 percent of Colorado voters had submitted their ballots for the primary. If you are mailing said ballot, it needs to arrive by Tuesday, June 26, not just be postmarked. And it needs two stamps. If you are delivering by hand, you need to get it in the drop-off box by sometime on the 26th.
Now, why should you vote? Because your choice could have a huge impact come November. Do you care who might become our governor? I favor Jared Polis, but perhaps you don't. When it comes to our U.S. Representative from Eagle County, it can be confusing, since our county is divided into two Congressional districts.
Experience and dedication matter; vote for Mitsch Bush, Weiser
Vail Daily News | Jamie Harrison | June 19, 2018
Experience and dedication matter. And in this primary season, there are two candidates who stand out by their knowledge of the issues that are important to Eagle County voters and their commitment to representing us.
Diane Mitsch Bush has ably represented us in the Colorado House of Representatives for years.
Mitsch Bush has excellent track record
Aspen Daily Times | Austin Owen | June 20, 2018
Diane Mitsch Bush is by far the most qualified Democratic candidate running for the Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District. She held her seat in the Colorado House of Representatives for four and a half years and served as the chair of the Transportation and Energy Committee and vice chair of the Agriculture, Livestock and Natural Resources Committee.

Why I’m voting for Paula, Jean and Diane
Aspen Times | John Colson | June 11, 2018
It's primary election season in Colorado (the actual primary date is June 26, though most voters are likely to mail in their ballots between today and then), and we've got plenty of candidates to choose from to fill seats at various levels of government.
For now, I'll concentrate on just three of them...
Diane Mitsch Bush supports LGBTQ community
Aspen Times | Marcus Breman | June 11, 2018
Colorado has a proud history of defending LGBTQ rights. Our state legalized same-sex marriage back in 2008, seven years before it was federally mandated. Additionally, we were the first state to make gender identity a protected class, and prosecute crimes based on transgender status as hate crimes. This is a record that I, at 15 only years old, feel proud of. Unfortunately, our 3rd Congressional District representative, Scott Tipton, is working to undermine that legacy.
Why I’m backing Mitsch Bush
Aspen Daily News | Rachel Richards,
Pitkin County commissioner, former mayor of Aspen | June 12, 2018
When my primary ballot arrives, I’m voting for Diane Mitsch Bush on the Democratic ballot.
Unaffiliated voters who have not pre-selected which ballot they prefer to vote will receive both Republican and Democratic primary ballots, but can only fill out and return one ballot. A key point for unaffiliated voters is to decide which races are most important to them, and then, in a true first for Colorado, have a meaningful voice in who advances to our November elections for federal, state and local offices!
I’m voting for Mitsch Bush in the 3rd Congressional race because, as much as I know, respect and honor the other two candidates, I have worked with Dianne since she was first elected a Routt County commissioner
Diane Mitsch Bush on top of policy issues
Aspen Times | Rachel Richards,
Pitkin County commissioner, former mayor of Aspen | June 12, 2018
Working regionally Diane has become an expert in key policy issues as diverse as transportation, water law and human services. Diane Mitsch Bush carried tough legislation throughout her career there, from measures to tackle health insurance cost to funding our state highways and transit. She successfully passed the Independence Pass 'oversized trucks' law to increase fines to $1,500 for those that ignore the size restrictions and endangered all our citizens; getting vested interest & stakeholders to the table to work out a solution including the Co state patrol, the Dept of Transportation, The Trucker Association, Co Counties Inc., Pitkin County and the Pitkin Sheriff's office.
3rd CD candidates work independent, unaffiliated voters
Post Independent | Matthew Bennett | June 14, 2018
Wednesday night, Western Colorado Independent Voters held a forum in Glenwood Springs for the Democratic primary candidates whose names appear on the ballot this month.
Participating were former Colorado State Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush, former Eagle County Commissioner Arn Menconi, and a campaign representative for Glenwood Springs municipal and water attorney Karl Hanlon, who could not attend due to work commitments.
Replace Tipton; vote for Bush
Telluride Daily Planet | Jerramy Fine | June 14, 2018
I grew up in Montrose, Colorado and spent many happy summers and winters in Telluride. And I’m writing to say that I am fed up with Congressman Scott Tipton not representing me or the needs of his district.
Life is harder than ever for the working class, yet Tipton voted in favor of the horrendous tax bill that benefits only his wealthiest constituents and ignores everyone else. Tipton lives in Western Colorado, one of the most beautiful places on Earth, yet he has consistently sided with oil and gas lobbyists in destroying our public lands.
Diane Mitsch Bush (running as the Democratic candidate for Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District) is a much needed change and I urge everyone to support her.
Congressional candidates speak out at Democratic forum in Steamboat
Steamboat Pilot | Tom Ross | June 13, 2018
Nearing the end of a long tour through the 29 counties that comprise Colorado's 3rd Congressional District, it was clear that the three Democrats vying to challenge Congressman Scott Tipton, R-Cortez, in the November election were comfortable with one another and their audience during a Monday campaign event in downtown Steamboat Springs.
