Barb Kirkmeyer for Congress


  • “Biden and Democrats have put our country in a tailspin, and American families are paying the price. When Republicans retake Congress, we will prioritize cutting the cost of living, increasing access to a good education, and restoring safety to our communities.”
  • “Politicians like Yadira Caraveo have made it near-impossible to start or keep a small business. I’ve been endorsed by the NFIB because as an experienced small business owner, I will work to rein in expensive government regulations on small business owners.”
  • “Reckless spending and bad economic policy, both here in Colorado and DC, have led to our state having the highest inflation in the country. We need to balance the budget, cut back on spending, and lower taxes. In Congress I will fight to get our economy back on track.”


  • “Barb’s campaign slogan is ‘the conservative fighter who wins,’ and she has a record to prove it, but it is her know-how and capacity to make a difference for Colorado that excites me most.” – Hank Brown, Former US Senator for Colorado
  • “Barb was a driving force to get much needed transportation funding for Northern Colorado, especially HWY 85 and I-25. I enjoyed watching her in action on the North Front Range Metropolitan Planning Council and know she will work hard for us back in DC.” – Mark Clark, Mayor of Evans, Colorado
  • “Barb has a record of making a difference on the issues that matter; standing up for law enforcement, cutting taxes, looking out for our energy and agriculture workers, defending the Second Amendment, and protecting the unborn.” – Steve Reams, Sheriff of Weld County, Colorado
