I would like to invite you to a special event that I am sponsoring for my sister Elizabeth Colbert Busch's congressional campaign.  I am so proud of her desire to serve the people of our home state of South Carolina.


Lulu and I have been through a lot together, and I know she is a bright, competent, caring woman who will who will fight hard in Congress to create jobs and protect Social Security.  There is another Democrat as well as sixteen Republicans who are running in the Primary, including former Governor and renowned hike-lover Mark Sanford. Our chances look good.


It is rare for me to take an active role in anyone's political ambitions other than my own. But this is different -  beyond a brother's love, I truly believe Lulu is the best candidate to represent my beloved Lowcountry in the United States Congress.


Details on the event and Elizabeth Colbert Busch's bio can be found below.  Thank you for your support, and I look forward to seeing you on February 23rd.


With Gratitude,
Colbert Signature

Elizabeth Colbert Busch's Serious House Run - POLITICO
February 17

Elizabeth Colbert Busch has lost at least one election, against some very stiff competition: a vote among the eight Colbert siblings, including her comedian brother Stephen, to decide who's the funniest. Even Stephen lost, it turned out. 


Don't count out Stephen Colbert's sister: Washington Post

From the moment she announced her special election campaign, Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch has been viewed as something of a novelty candidate.

That's the downside of being Stephen Colbert's sister.

The upside, of course, is that her brother is probably going to help her raise lots of money at consecutive fundraisers next weekend and by mentioning her campaign on his TV show.

And despite many people dismissing her chances in a pretty conservative South Carolina congressional district, nobody should be counting her out completely.

We know what it's going to take to win that seat," Clyburn said at a union meeting in Hanahan,according to a video taken by Patch. "I'm going to be endorsing Elizabeth Colbert Busch today because I think it's important for us to get a nominee out on the Democratic primary that will have a chance at winning." 
ECB Head ShotFor the past five years, Elizabeth has been the Director of Business Development at Clemson University's Restoration Institute at the former Naval Shipyard in North Charleston in South Carolina. As Director, she has played a key role in bringing about the world's largest wind turbine/grid simulator facility-recognized internationally for both its technology and unique capabilities. Elizabeth also spearheaded the South Carolina Wind Industry's Economic impact findings, which concluded that this sector has already generated thousands of jobs and millions in wages and revenue for SC, with projections of exponential increases in all three areas over the next few years.


Elizabeth wants this generation and the next to be able to embrace the adventures and challenges of tomorrow without the level of uncertainty we are struggling with today. She understands what it is going to take to develop the modern American economy and recognizes that "This is Our Time."


Elizabeth and the "love of her life," husband Claus Busch-who was born and raised in the Charleston area-dote on the three children they've raised together. They are blessed with three grandchildren, with one on the way. They reside in the Charleston area.
