Republican congressional candidate Barbara Kirkmeyer has been endorsed by Maggie’s List for Colorado’s new 8th district seat.

The Political Action Committee supports Republicans running for Congress who promote fiscal conservatism, less government, more personal responsibility, and a strong national security.

“This is the first time Maggie’s List has funded a Colorado Congressional candidate, and I could not be more proud to bring more conservative funds into our state,” Horn told Campfire Colorado. “Having common sense women leaders representing our communities across the state is paramount. We are listening to urban, suburban and rural moms and it’s time for us to have leaders that represent them nationally and across the state.”

The race is tightening up in the 8th where Democrat opponent Yadira Caraveo is bragging that her big funders have brought in more than $1.5 million to her campaign this reporting quarter.

Meanwhile, a rally for Kirkmeyer and GOP Senate candidate Joe O’Dea is set for this Saturday, Oct. 8 in Thornton by Chili’s on 16501 Washington Street.

The Rally for America’s Future in support of common-sense government starts at 9 a.m., and bonus, there will be coffee and donuts.
