At its annual conference held in Cripple Creek this year, Action 22 invited congressional candidates for Southern Colorado districts to debate on issues and questions as asked by the audience, and asked KRCC to moderate.

Here is audio from the debate for Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, featuring incumbent Representative Scott Tipton (R), challenger Sal Pace (D), and challenger Tisha Casida (U). It begins with Representative Tipton offering his opening statement.

Please note: Due to technical challenges, the moderator’s microphone was not picked up by the soundboard. Andrea has made post-event adjustments to that sound in an effort to make the questions and procedures more audible.

You can also revisit a story from earlier in September regarding the race for Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District.
