When I read the Herald’s endorsement of Diane Mitsch Bush, I was impressed with her experience and her track record as an independent leader. She stood up to Democratic leadership when she was in the state House because they opposed a Republican water bill that would be good for her district. She sided with Republicans and passed the bill with their support. She will make decisions based on what is best for our district. Lauren Boebert is more focused on picking partisan fights. She will not be an effective leader.
