Hanlon campaign launches 3rd District tour this week
Karl Hanlon, one of several Democratic candidates running for Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, is kicking off a 29-county tour of the district over two weeks, leading to the Colorado Democrat’s state assembly on Friday, April 13, in Broomfield.
“Support from county assemblies district-wide has been incredible,” said Hanlon, a Carbondale-area resident and Glenwood Springs attorney who has been working since December to build name recognition across the district.
“I am committed to doing the hard work and continuing to show up and talk to people,” he said in a news release.
Hanlon, along with Democrats Arn Menconi of Eagle County, Diane Mitsch Bush of Routt County and Root Routledge of La Plata County, are vying for spots on the June 26 primary ballot to be the party’s choice to face four-term incumbent Republican Congressman Scott Tipton in November.
Hanlon says he has already put 20,000 miles on his pickup truck, meeting voters in communities throughout the district since he announced his candidacy in late November.
