Targeted digital ads in CO-03 will remind Coloradans that it has been more than two years since Tipton publicly listed an event for his constituents
Today, the DCCC announced that it’s launching a targeted digital ad buy in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, which will remind voters of just how long it has been since Congressman Scott Tipton publicly listed an event for his constituents.
According to his own website, it has been 829 days since Tipton publicly listed an official event to hear from his constituents. Last month, La Plata County Democrats chair Carol Cure told the Durango Herald that “although he lives in Cortez and is often spotted at the airport, she does not remember seeing Tipton in the area since 2015.” Carol continued, “We kind of have a joke that we don’t really remember what [Tipton] looks like.”
The DCCC’s ads, which re-direct to a website that will keep track of how long it’s been since Tipton’s last publicly listed event, will start running today in both Spanish and English and appear on Facebook. The ads are targeted to the 3rd District, ensuring that Tipton’s inaccessibility is top of mind of Coloradans back home.
“Congressman Scott Tipton has spent nearly a decade in office looking out for his special interest donors while consistently failing to show up for hardworking Coloradans and voting to both raise the cost of health care and end protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Colorado families deserve a representative who will listen to them and fight for their priorities in Washington, and Tipton has made it clear that he’s not up to the job,” said DCCC Spokesperson Brooke Goren.
