DENVER  -  Pueblo Democrat Sal Pace has announced that he plans to challenge U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton for his congressional seat next year. In an interview, the Colorado House minority leader told The Daily Sentinel that he would enter the 3rd Congressional District race, saying he’s doing so because he believes he can better represent the expansive district than the Republican who currently holds the seat.  Pace, 34, was elected to the House in 2009 when the Democrats still held a majority. Last year, when the Democrats lost that 65-member chamber to Republicans by a one-vote margin, Pace was elected by other Democrats as their leader.
