Tipton wins WSCA support

By Charles Ashby

State Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Cortez, has won the support from the Western Slope Conservative Alliance in his bid to be the Republican Party's nominee to run against U.S. Rep. John Salazar, the Democrat who represents Colorado's third congressional district.

The alliance is to formally announce its endorsement of Tipton at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Tipton's Grand Junction office, 337 S. 1st St., which is just next door to the Pufferbelly Restaurant.

In a release announcing that pending endorsement, WSCA president Jennifer Bailey said:

“While we do not imply that we speak for our members or for the tea party movement, we want to share with our members that, after a careful vetting process by the board that included a candidate questionnaire, board member interviews with each candidate and our recent candidate forum, Scott Tipton is the conservative Republican candidate that the board supports for the third congressional district.”

The other GOP candidate in the primary is Bob McConnell of Steamboat Springs.

The WSCA calls itself "a non-partisan organization dedicated to finding solutions to today's challenges by empowering the individual and limiting the role of government."  For additional information, visit its Web site at www.wscaonline.org.
