Rep. Scott Tipton returns to Legislature for visit

DENVER (NF5, AP) - Republican Rep. Scott Tipton is back in the Colorado Capitol - only this time he'll be visiting as a U.S. congressman, not a state representative.

Tipton also made several stops in Pueblo Monday and Tuesday, which is part of his district.

The pottery dealer from Cortez served two years in the state House. Last fall he unseated three-term Democratic Rep. John Salazar.

Salazar is awaiting confirmation as the head of the state Agriculture Department and says he won't challenge Tipton in 2012.

In Washington, Tipton is on the House Small Business Committee.
