Every Ray Rose Has Its Thorn

  • 1 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols


As The Grand Junction Sentinel reports:

Three-term Colorado Rep. Ray Rose, R-Montrose, said Wednesday he will not seek re-election next year.

“I plan on serving out the rest of my term, but I will not stand for re-election,” Rose said. “It’s time to do something else.”

The 63-year-old lawmaker, whose district spans six counties in southwestern Colorado, said he decided not to run for a fourth term so he could spend more time with his wife, Donna, and the rest of his family…

…He said it is his understanding that Cortez businessman and former congressional candidate Scott Tipton will be the Republican candidate for his House district next year.

“If Ray is not going to run for the seat, I would have a strong interest in looking at the 58th (House District),” Tipton said.

Democratic Montrose City Councilwoman Noelle Hagan, who has announced she will run for Rose’s seat next year, said Rose’s decision came as a shock to her.

Tipton would certainly be a tough contender for a state House seat after losing badly to Rep. John Salazar in his bid for CD-3 last year. Tipton has the money and the name ID to make this seat probably an easy hold for Republicans.

One thought on “Every Ray Rose Has Its Thorn

  1. Demographics of 58 changing quickly, Republicans (like Rose) are still old-school, not changing with the times. Dems, however, in disarray in much of District, so might not be able to run a decent challenge.  Some places in district that should be Dem, more Green-apathetic…  I think the trends are there that a Dem could win, except for the fact that they are a Dem.  If only there were a REAL opposition party in this land…
