Barbara Kirkmeyer was a 2014 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 4th Congressional District of Colorado.[1]


Kirkmeyer is a graduate of the University of Colorado. She co-owned and operated a small business with her sister for 15 years and spent over 13 years as a County Commissioner.[2]


Campaign themes


Kirkmeyer's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Fiscal Responsibility: "Over 13 years as a County Commissioner, Barbara has a proven track record as a fiscal conservative. In her time on the Commission, Weld is the only county in the state with no debt, no county sales tax, and actually has given a refund back to taxpayers year after year."
  • 2nd Amendment: "In Colorado, the right to keep and bear arms is more than just a slogan; it is a part of our culture. Barbara helped draft and pass a resolution in support of Weld County Sheriff John Cooke’s efforts to oppose the egregious anti-gun legislation imposed by the Colorado Legislature. Barbara strongly supports the 2nd Amendment, without compromise."
  • Defending the Right to Life: "Standing up for the unborn means more than just making speeches. As a County Commissioner, Barbara voted to ban the Plan B abortion bill, and has been a proud and consistent supporter of the Personhood movement, unambiguously defending life from conception."
  • Protecting our Energy Resources: "In Colorado, we are blessed with an abundance of oil and natural gas that have the potential to be a huge boon to our economy. Unfortunately, radical environmentalists and the EPA have put up roadblock after roadblock to try to stifle our energy sector. Barbara has been a strong advocate for fracking, and enthusiastically supports the further exploration for oil and gas in Colorado."
  • Health Care: "Colorado families have been hammered by ObamaCare, and Barbara will go to Washington, DC and fight to get rid of this costly program that has hurt our state. Thousands of families have seen their plans cancelled, while thousands more have fewer options and higher premiums and deductibles. ObamaCare has been a disaster, and it must be repealed."
