    unless Tapia is really awesome or Tipton collapses.

    In that year, I can see McFadyen running for real.  But other than her, it would seem that Dems would need a western slope candidate like John Salazar (or maybe get Salazar back in the game) to win.

    •  The Salazars aren't West Slope (5+ / 0-)

      But they were the next best thing: San Luis valley, which can appeal to both the hipster lifestyle-enthusiast young 'uns on the Slope, and the old Latino communities in and around Pueblo. It's a really tough circle to square. Tapia could do it in theory, but he's in his 60's and I wonder how hard he'll try to get out to the nether portions of the district.
