Craig — Congressman Scott Tipton, R-Cortez, will be in Steamboat Springs on Tuesday to thank voters for their support during the November general election.

"One of the great benefits of representing the 3rd Congressional District is getting the opportunity to visit Northwestern Colorado, one of the most beautiful spots in the state," Tipton said in a statement. "I certainly am looking forward to visiting with constituents in Steamboat and listening to the issues that are on their minds, as well as sharing an update on what's happening in Washington."
