    Just over a month after she upset five-term incumbent U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton in the Republican primary, Lauren Boebert landed a spot Wednesday in the top tier of the House GOP's campaign support program for candidates in competitive districts. Boebert, a restaurant owner and first-time candidate, is facing former state Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush in the Republican-leaning 3rd Congressional District. Boebert is the second congressional candidate in Colorado this cycle to be tapped for the National Republican Congressional Committee's Young Guns fundraising and training program, though out of the gate she leapfrogged 6th Congressional District nominee Steve House, who has...

    Sitting here watching returns in Western Colorado. Scott Tipton is on the verge of defeat to newcomer, "Shooter's Grill" restaurant owner and western Colorado resident Lauren Boebert. Last check, it was sitting at Boebert 54.34%, Tipton at 45.66%. This is a major shift towards draining the swamp of do nothing establishment leeches to installing newy, freedom oriented blood. On my local level, former State Representative Ray Scott is losing to newcomer Cody Davis. Unfortunately, former Governor John Hickenlooper won the anti-American leftist liberal vote thanks to the front range, or as we call it over here, New Commieforniastan. The front...

    A coming change in accounting standards could do irreversible damage to community banks, U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Colo., said in a letter to the Financial Accounting Standards Board. An accounting-standards update due to be issued by the board would change the way all lenders set aside reserve funds in anticipation of possible losses. The board, wrote Tipton and Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Fla., should take "utmost caution" in proceeding because it has the potential to "irreversibly damage community banks' and credit unions' ability to continue to adequately serve their customers/members and communities and sustain the economic recovery." ...

    Scott Tipton’s campaign released a commissioned poll that puts the Western Slope Republican ahead of Democratic Rep. John Salazar in a rematch of their 2006 battle, which Salazar won handily: Salazar has recently been the subject of scrutiny from legislation over a proposed land deal that involves his largest donor. Yesterday, NRO Campaign Spot’s Jim Geraghty listed Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District as a 50-50 pickup probability. The Cook Political Report lists Salazar’s seat as “leans Democratic” in a R+5 PVI district. Real Clear Politics also lists the race as leaning Democratic.

    Republican Scott Tipton, a Colorado state representative, announced Monday that he will challenge Democrat John Salazar for the congressional seat he has held for three terms. "With encouragement from people around our district — Republicans, Democrats, unaffiliated voters — I am entering the race to represent the 3rd Congressional District of Colorado," Tipton said in a statement Monday. He argues that voters are ready to turn out the Democratic majority in Congress and that includes Salazar, who has served three terms. Tipton challenged Salazar once before, in 2006, but lost 146,488 to 86,930. Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District includes nearly all...
