Sal Pace Within Striking Distance of Congressman Tipton According to New CO-03 Poll

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today released a new Grove Insight poll that shows Sal Pace (CO-03) and Congressman Scott Tipton statistically tied. Despite being an incumbent, Congressman Tipton garners only 42 percent in the initial head to head vote while Pace is close behind with 39 percent.

Almost half, 46 percent, give Congressman Tipton a negative evaluation of his time in office and only 37 percent approve.
“After voting to end Medicare’s guaranteed benefits and choosing to give tax breaks to millionaires over protecting Colorado’s seniors, it’s no surprise Congressman Scott Tipton would be in this much trouble,” said Stephen Carter of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.  “Coloradans will fire Congressman Tipton in November because he only looks out for the interests of millionaires and big corporations instead of Colorado seniors, families, and jobs.”

A Grove Insight polling memo is available here.
