Republican Candidate Puts 3rd District In Play
Grand Junction, CO – Today, the Tipton for Congress campaigned released polling showing Scott Tipton in a virtual tie with incumbent Congressman John Salazar.
Tipton, a small business owner and respected public servant, ensures the 3rd Congressional District of Colorado will be a significant pick-up opportunity for Republicans this fall.
Furthermore, the polling demonstrates that the public’s view of Democrats continues to deteriorate with less than a third of voters stating they would support a Democrat candidate for Congress.
In response to the polling, Scott Tipton stated:
“I am extremely pleased to see that we are already within the margin of error with John Salazar. Our campaign has received and incredible amount of support already throughout the 3rd Congressional District and we only have room to grow. I truly believe Coloradans realize the John Salazar only represents the special-interest groups in Washington and not the people from this district. To get this country back on track we need to control spending, let the private sector create jobs and keep the government out of the doctor’s office. We need to bring conservative values and Colorado common sense back to Washington.”
Scott Tipton has been a small business owner for the past 30 years, with firsthand experience creating jobs, meeting a payroll and balancing a budget. It was through his business that Scott met his wife of 26 years, Jean, who is a former school teacher. The Tipton’s have two daughters, Liesl and Elizabeth. A respected public servant in the Colorado House of Representatives, Scott is fighting to create jobs, improve public safety, protect our children and create a better quality of life for Coloradans.
