    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...

    DENVER (CBS4) – Republican Lauren Boebert, running to represent Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, will spend July 4th with Pres. Donald Trump. They’ll be celebrating Independence Day at the same event. Earlier this week, Boebert defeated five-term incumbent Rep. Scott Tipton in the Republican primary. Boebert owns a restaurant on the Western Slope that opened for dine-in service in May and violated a cease and desist order. She and her restaurant also made headlines for employees openly carrying guns.

    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." ...

    Colorado 3rd District Rep. Scott Tipton, who had long said he wasn’t “closing doors on anything,” told Roll Call Friday afternoon that he will be running for re-election to his House seat rather than running for the Senate. “You know, we’ve got a lot of issue we’re working on that are incredibly important for my part of the state and our state at large. And we’ve had some success, and that’s where we’re focused,” Tipton said. Asked to clarify if he was still leaving the door open, Tipton said, “No, I’m running for the Third District.” GOP consultant Michael Fortney,...

    The head of the FDIC faced tough grilling today from members of a House Financial Services subcommittee including U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton on a rogue policy that essentially directed banks not to deal with businesses the Obama administration found objectionable. Dubbed “Operation Choke Point,” the Justice Department essentially directed the nation’s top financial regulator to intimidate banks into cutting off accounts or doing any business at all with a list of 30 different types small business owners. The list included gun shops, ammunition dealers ... Tipton also got the old DC song and dance when he asked if the federal...

Former Democratic leader in the State House and current Pueblo County Commissioner Buffie McFadyen was the recipient of some special treatment by police during a potential DUI stop in Pueblo. She was caught in a rather awkward situation — parked in a dirt lot at night, intoxicated and with a man who isn’t her husband. But she didn’t get a DUI – instead she got a ride home.

    Former state Rep. Pam Byrnes, a Democrat from Washtenaw County's Lyndon Township, announced Thursday she's running for Congress to help fix a "broken system" in Washington. Byrnes is seeking the 7th District seat held by Tim Walberg, a Republican from Tipton who unseated Democrat Mark Schauer in 2010 to regain the seat. Walberg held the seat in 2007 and 2008 before losing to Schauer in November 2008. Byrnes will take her shot at unseating Walberg in 2014. "Washington is broken and Tim Walberg is part of the problem. He puts special interests and corporations ahead of middle-class Michigan families," Byrnes...

    An elderly couple have been arrested on suspicion of killing their daughter who died after two decades battling an extreme form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Ken and Marion Hancox, who are both in ill health, have spent eight months under suspicion of the manslaughter of their housebound daughter, Samantha, a former law student. The 40-year-old developed a crippling phobia of germs which forced her to shower up to 20 hours a day and left her incapable of cooking for herself. She developed the disorder as a student and had needed constant care from her parents ever since. By the time...

She’ll be a tremendous asset to this grassroots effort to send a small businessman to Washington.” Sarah Palin has identified 20 House seats occupied by incumbent Democrats who voted for the Obama administration’s health...

    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.

    Scott Tipton may have to get himself a good hunting dog if he’s going to track down John Salazar for many debates. Earlier in the week, Salazar’s camp wasn’t too sure if the congressman was going to be able to make the regular forum and debate at Club 20 here in Grand Junction, which is totally understandable since the gathering involves 20 counties in western Colorado and has only been scheduled for something like a year.... A leaked memorandum by the Bureau of Land Management indicates consideration to use the 1906 Antiquities Act to authorize executive action creating national monuments...

    Republican Scott Tipton says he’s reshuffling the race in the 3rd Congressional District, making it a winnable contest. A spokesman for incumbent John Salazar, though, says Salazar has nothing to fear, while Tipton has plenty of problems in his own party. RealClearPolitics.com this week moved the 3rd Congressional District race from “leaning Democrat” to a “toss-up” in November’s general election, a shift that led Tipton’s campaign staff to declare Salazar “is already losing his edge” in March.

    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...

    U.S. Rep. John Salazar, D-Colo., and an aide are the talk of the Colorado political blogosphere. A highly critical ad apparently ready for television was circulating on the Internet on Monday, but had yet to be broadcast. The ad questions the conduct of Salazar’s Washington, D.C., spokeswoman, Nayyera Haq, who also speaks for the Congressional Muslim American Staffers Association. In that capacity, Haq criticized Rep. Tom Tancredo, a Front Range Republican, for his letter supporting Pope Benedict XVI, who had quoted a 14th century emperor that condemned Islam. Salazar, a first-term congressman from Manassa, has declined to comment directly on...
