Ft. Collins, CO – Dr. Karen McCormick, candidate for Colorado’s 4th Congressional District increased her impressive list of early endorsements on Wednesday, as she announced the support of Fmr. U.S. Congresswoman Betsy Markey.
“It is absolutely honor to have the support of Congresswoman Betsy Markey. Both Betsy and I owned and operated successful businesses and like her, I believe in an economy where hard work is rewarded, where everyone pays their fair share and that all Coloradans –not just those at the top –should have an opportunity to get ahead,” said Dr. McCormick.
Betsy Markey has served in government in several capacities. She worked for the U.S. Treasury Department and the U.S. State Department before co-founding the software company Syscom Services. After working for U.S. Senator Ken Salazar, representing his office to the North Central and Eastern Plains of Colorado, Betsy was elected in 2008 to represent this region in the U.S. Congress. While in Congress Rep. Markey sat on the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the Committee on Agriculture.
“In these times of political gridlock and division, the people of Colorado’s 4th District deserve a leader that is not entangled in corrupt special interests or long-standing political rivalries but instead, they deserve a leader that will work across the aisle for a government that is focused on building a stronger middle class, higher household incomes, affordable higher education and job training programs and a future that includes a safe and secure retirement and Karen McCormick is just that candidate. I am proud to endorse Dr. Karen McCormick for U.S. House of Representatives in Colorado’s 4th District,” said Betsy Markey.
Last quarter, Dr. Karen McCormick was the only Democrat to out raise Rep. Ken Buck.
Election Day is November 6, 2018.
