In the Republican primary fight for the seat, Ken Buck has defeated Jane Norton. In Colorado’s 3rd District for US Representative, Republican Scott Tipton has defeated Steamboat Springs resident Bob McConnell. Tipton will face incumbent and unchallenged Democrat John Salazar in November.

In El Paso County, Sherriff Terry Maketa soundly defeated challenger Jake Shirk, with over 72% of the vote.
