Grand Junction City Councilman Chris Kennedy has joined state Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush (D-Steamboat Springs) in the Democratic congressional primary next year. The winner will challenge four-term Rep. Scott Tipton (R-Cortez/Western Slope). Mr. Tipton has averaged more than 55% of the vote in his three re-election campaigns. The 3rd can be a competitive seat but has voted consistently Republican since 2006. President Trump scored a 52-40% victory here last November despite losing the state, 43-48%.
