Early life[edit]

He attended Harvard University for his undergraduate degree and later returned to Harvard for law school.


He served as a Republican member of the Colorado Senate from 1987 to 1992.[2] He was the primary organizer of Coloradans Back in Charge, a grassroots initiative that led to Colorado being the first state to impose term limits on the governor, state legislature and congressional delegation.[2] He left the state Senate early in 1992 to pursue the open seat in the United States Senate created by the decision of Democrat Tim Wirth to forgo a bid for a second term. Considine was defeated in the 1992 general election by Democrat Ben Nighthorse Campbell.[3] Campbell later became a Republican while still in office and was re-elected as a Republican in 1998.

He is listed as member of the Leadership Council of the Club for Growth.[4] He also serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Bradley Foundation.[5]
