Pueblo, CO — LCV Victory Fund has started running a new $500,000 TV ad in opposition to Lauren Boebert’s campaign against pro-environment candidate Diane Mitsch Bush. The spot is part of a previously announced joint $2.2 million effort between LCV Victory Fund, House Majority PAC, and WOMEN VOTE!, the independent expenditure arm of EMILY’s List, to defeat Boebert and elect Mitsch Bush.
WATCH: “Dangerously Wrong”
“Dangerously Wrong” went up on the air Tuesday in the Colorado Springs media market which includes the 3rd district’s largest city, Pueblo.
“Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District is home to soaring mountains, rushing rivers, and four of our five offices,” said Kelly Nordini, Executive Director, Conservation Colorado. “It’s a place where conservation values run deep — and voters deserve a leader who reflects those values. I’m thrilled that LCV Victory Fund, WOMEN VOTE! and House Majority PAC are teaming up to help elect Diane Mitsch Bush and look forward to working with her to bring a common-sense conservation perspective to Washington, DC.”
“Lauren Boebert is too radical for Colorado. Boebert has made it crystal clear that she will side with corporate polluters, which would threaten Colorado’s public lands and the health and well being of Coloradans,” said Emily Crerand, National Campaigns Director, LCV Victory Fund. “We need to elect Diane Mitsch Bush, a long time champion for Colorado’s environment and families.”
A 2020 poll of battleground House districts by LCV Victory Fund, NRDC Action Votes, EDF Action and House Majority PAC found that environmental messaging can swing competitive House races.

To protect public lands in Colorado
We find common ground
But in Congress, Lauren Boebert’s dangerous ideas
Would threaten our public lands
And our access to them
Boebert would open up public lands to corporate polluters
While pulling the plug on renewable energy projects
Like solar and wind
Shutting down good jobs
Selling out our future
Lauren Boebert is dangerously wrong for Colorado
