Glenwood Springs chief legal counsel Karl Hanlon has announced that he is running as a Democrat for the 3rd Congressional District seat current held by fourth-term Republican Scott Tipton.

 

“Over the last several months, I have spoken with many people about the challenges we face in western and southern Colorado. In those conversations, the thing I’ve heard over and over is that people are feeling ignored by their elected representatives,” Hanlon said in a prepared statement.

He will launch his campaign with a three-day tour around the district starting next Monday in Alamosa and ending Wednesday in Glenwood Springs.

Hanlon joins two other Democrats in the race for the party’s nomination. State Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush of Steamboat Springs announced in July that she would be running for Congress, and Chris Kennedy of Grand Junction filed his candidacy in September.
