Rep. John Lewis Endorses Elizabeth Colbert Busch In S.C. House Race

TOM KLUDT 8:20 AM EST, THURSDAY FEBRUARY 28, 2013

Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of satirist Stephen Colbert who is running for U.S. House in South Carolina's First District, received an endorsement Thursday from a top southern Democrat.

Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), the longtime congressman and former civil rights leader, offered his support of Colbert Busch, calling her a "friend" and "sister."

“Elizabeth Colbert Busch is my friend and my sister. I am endorsing her in the Special Election for South Carolina’s First District. The Colbert family has always been a strong advocate for all the people of South Carolina. I have visited the First District and know they need a powerful voice in Washington; Elizabeth can be that voice. I know she will be a hard working and dedicated Member of Congress who speaks up and speaks out for the people she serves. She has never been afraid to get in the way. Elizabeth Colbert Busch deserves the help and support of all the people of the Lowcountry.”

5. Stephen Colbert probably has all kinds of dirt on her.

He has the power to destroy the career of a Democrat.

The scoundrel.

6. My first impressions

 

of her is she has the good heart and he has the bad one. She probably took cared of him, whenever he got out of line.

11. Elizabeth Colbert being endorsed by the heroic John Lewis should be a great asset.

Wishing good health to Mr. Lewis and a victory for Ms. Colbert. Her resume was already quite good and this is a compliment to her candidacy.
