Locked in a primary against grassroots candidate Bob McConnell, Colorado 3rd Congressional District candidate Scott Tipton touts an endorsement that could go a long way with many in the Tea Party movement:
The Scott Tipton Campaign for Congress is honored to announce the endorsement of Congressman Jason Chaffetz from Utah’s 3rd Congressional District. “Congressman Chaffetz has been a leader in the grassroots and conservative movement,” Tipton said. “I am proud to align my values, my dedication and my passion for taking back this country with his.”
Congressman Jason Chaffetz: “I would like to announce my endorsement of Scott Tipton for the 3rd Congressional District of Colorado. After serving in Congress for the last year I know now, more than ever, that Washington needs a man like Scott Tipton who will fight for conservative values, defend our principles and uphold our Constitution. Scott Tipton is the type of leader we need to defeat John Salazar this November.”
“Congressman Chaffetz’s endorsement, as well as the substantial grassroots support our campaign has received since I entered the race in November, is putting us on the track to take back the 3rd Congressional District,” Tipton said. “I would like to thank Congressman Chaffetz and all of those who have given me support and encouragement as we work to defeat John Salazar.”
Reading a quick sketch of Jason Chaffetz’s bio and watching his Tax Day Tea Party speech in Salt Lake City will let you know why the new Utah Congressman is a hero of the grassroots Tea Party movement.
