In Pueblo, Diane Mitsch Bush lays out plan to flip CD-3

Colorado Politics | Kara Mason | March 27, 2018

If Democrats are going to flip Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, Diane Mitsch Bush is clear in that she’s not doing it the way other candidates have tried in the past.

The former Steamboat Springs state legislator told a group of voters in Pueblo on Friday that she has a track record of getting elected in pockets of the state where Democrats are the underdogs, and she doesn’t plan on ending her losing streak now, even as U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton has effortlessly defeated Democratic opponents for his seat since being elected in 2008.

Colorado Politics | Ernest Luning | March 27, 2018

Democratic congressional candidate Diane Mitsch Bush has been endorsed by former Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, whose brother John Salazar was unseated by U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton, the Republican incumbent Mitsch Bush is challenging, her campaign announced Thursday.

Mitsch Bush, a former state lawmaker and Routt County commissioner from Steamboat Springs, is one of three Democrats running in a primary in the sprawling 3rd Congressional District. The others are Glenwood Springs municipal and water attorney Karl Hanlon and former Eagle County Commissioner Arn Menconi, the 2016 Green Party nominee for the U.S. Senate.

We’re lucky to have Diane Mitsch Bush

Aspen Daily | Dorothea Farris | March 27, 2018

The Congressional Representative for Colorado’s 3rd District must meet the demands of a complex and diverse district.  That individual must be informed, intelligent, reasonable, willing to take a position, able to discuss complex issues and able to spend the time required to read, study, analyze, and present ideas and concepts for resolution of issues to create beneficial policy for us.

The polls reflect Diane Mitsch Bush’s credentials

Aspen Daily | Tricia Farrell | March 23, 2018

I have been talking a lot lately about the fact that Diane Mitsch Bush is the only Democratic candidate that has the credentials and ability to beat Scott Tipton, and clearly I’m not the only one who thinks so. The preference poll in Garfield County showed that Diane won over 60% of the delegates, incredible considering that Garfield is Karl Hanlon’s home county. This is his home, his neighbors, and he still couldn’t make a strong showing.

Mitsch Bush lands Salazar endorsement as Hanlon launches Topple Tipton Tour

Real Vail  | Real Vail Staff  | March 22, 2018

The two Democrats vying to challenge incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton in the sprawling 3rd Congressional District, which includes a big chunk of Eagle County, this week stepped up their campaigns to land the Democratic nod in the Tuesday, June 26 primary election.

Former Routt County commissioner and state Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush landed a key endorsement from former U.S. senator and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, whose brother John was the last Democrat to represent CD3 before being ousted by Tipton in the 2010 Tea Party wave (see press release below).

Irresponsible and misleading journalism

Durango Herald | Tim Keresey | March 19, 2018

The most recent article (Herald, March 9) regarding the 3rd Congressional race was irresponsible journalism and misleading.

The paper is quoted as saying the race was “dominated by Karl Hanlon.” However, the numbers reported don’t account for seven full precincts (the paper buried this note below) and it is wholly possible that if counted the final results would not favor either candidate.

If you want to win, vote for Diane Mitsch Bush, not Karl Hanlon for 3rd District (letter)

Vail Daily Press| Tricia Farrell | March 15, 2018

I recently saw a letter to the editor about Karl Hanlon that I would like to respond to ("Supporting Karl Hanlon," Glenwood Springs Post Independent, Thursday, March 8). As we look toward November to beat Scott Tipton, let us not forget that Tipton is going to be a formidable opponent. To ensure his defeat, we must be backing a candidate that we know can win.

Mitsch Bush works for all her constituents

Glenwood Post Independent | Tricia Farrell | February 20, 2018

With so much going on in the news last week, some of you may not have noticed that the U.S. House of Representatives voted to gut the Americans with Disabilities Act. This not only harms our disabled veterans, it also harms families with disabled children, those hurt on the job and the elderly. Rep. Scott Tipton voted in favor of this gutting — not a surprise considering he's no friend of the needy. It's time we have a representative that fights for and votes for the people in our district. We need a representative who will protect all our neighbors, not a representative that grovels at the feet of big campaign donors.

Aspen Times | Tricia Farrell | February 10, 2018

I know that many of you are as fed up as I am with what is going on in Washington DC. There is something we can do now to balance the scales. The time to act is now, get involved and lend support to progressive, grassroots candidates for the 2018 elections. I have found the perfect candidate to unseat Scott Tipton. Diane Mitsch Bush will do the will of the people not the will of the wealthy campaign donors.

Letter: Move aside Tipton, it’s time for new representation in 3rd Congressional District

Vail Daily | Adam Quinton | January 23, 2018

Dear Vail Daily: In a recent letter, Katherine Delanoy called out Rep. Scott Tipton for his poorly informed (to put it politely) positions on climate science and energy policy ("Tipton stuck on all-of-the-above energy future," Sunday, Jan. 21). These issues alone speak to the urgent need for a new representative for Colorado's 3rd Congressional District in Washington, D.C.
