Today, the candidates profiled will be Scott Tipton and Max Burns.
Candidate #1: Scott Tipton
Seat Currently Held By: John Salazar (D)
Candidate + cash on hand: Scott Tipton ($307,568)

Tipton can definitely beat Salazar, but the district is huge and he’s going to have to close that fund raising gap with Salazar in order to be competitive.

Barrow beat Burns 52% vs. 48% in 2004, but the district has been redrawn since then in a way that makes it more favorable to Burns.
