Elizabeth Colbert-Busch

"What Was I Thinking?"

What makes a successful businesswoman and leading expert in world trade decide to enter politics and seek a seat in the United States Congress? What challenges did she face in a state where there are no women representatives in the U.S. House or Senate, and less than ten percent of seats in the state legislature are held by women?

Come hear 1st congressional district candidate Elizabeth Colbert-Busch talk about her decision to step up, about life on the campaign trail, and about what comes next in her political career.


Elizabeth Colbert-Busch is former Director of Sales and Marketing for one of the top ten ocean carriers in the world, past Chairwoman for the Maritime Association of South Carolina, and currently Director of Business Development for CU’s Restoration Institute in Charleston.
