Pace camp charges Tipton flip flops on Farm Bill
Last week Congressman Scott Tipton, R-Cortez, endorsed a discharge petition that would bring the Farm Bill before the U.S. House of Representatives for a floor vote. The next day, Sept. 13, Tipton removed his name from the petition. Sal Pace, D-Pueblo, one of two challengers vying for the Third Congressional District of Colorado — an office currently occupied by Tipton, criticized the Congressman for flip flopping on the Farm Bill, and bowing to political pressure from House leaders and right wing special interest groups like Club for Growth.
Tipton camp charges ad is disingenuous
On Monday the Sal Pace campaign launched its second television advertisement of the cycle. Pace, a Pueblo Democrat, is one of two challengers running against Congressman Scott Tipton, R-Cortez, for the office of the Third Congressional District of Colorado. The ad, entitled “Nearby,” highlights Pace’s promise to champion for Colorado seniors in Congress if elected. It is currently running district wide. The ad features Pace’s father, Salvatore — a retired mechanic living off of social security.
