Tipton Carries Pueblo County

Scott Tipton won a huge victory across the entire 29-county Third Congressional District, including old Democratic stronghold Pueblo County. The victory was even more impressive given his opponent was former Pueblo State Senator, Abel Tapia.

Maybe last year’s successful recall of Democratic State Senator Angela Giron, who Tapia tapped to be his replacement when he retired, was the harbinger of the Democrats’ future problems.

The only holdouts to the Republican sweep of the Western Slope were liberal ski communities: Gunnison (Crested Butte), Pitkin (Aspen), San Miguel (Telluride), old labor areas (Lake), and a few Spanish/Hispanic counties, such as Costilla and Saguache.
