LAKEWOOD – Colorado businessman Joe Coors announced his candidacy to seek the Republican nomination in Congressional District 7 this morning at the Lakewood campus of Red Rocks Community College.

"I'm running for Congress because I still believe in the American Dream," said Coors. "Washington needs leaders who have actually created jobs and built organizations that know how to compete in the global economy. I believe in an American Dream that still offers opportunity to those who work hard and take risks to succeed for them and their families."

Coors was the President and CEO at CoorsTek, Inc., a ceramics company that has grown to 3,500 employees at 44 plants located in 14 countries. He cited the size of the national debt and the continued level of federal spending as his top concerns.

"We need to make sure free enterprise is allowed to continue to grow and prosper in this country," said Coors. "Creating the new jobs we need for the 12 million Americans currently unemployed."

In attendance were Joe's wife Gail and children Brad, Douglas, and Holly, as well as his grandchildren.
