Martin Beeson , a Republican district attorney in western Colorado, has filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to prepare a House campaign in the state’s 3rd District, represented by three-term Democrat John Salazar .

Beeson is the district attorney in Colorado’s 9th Judicial District , which covers the counties of Rio Blanco, Garfield and Pitkin. They are three of the 29 counties that are wholly or partly in the 3rd, a 54,000-square mile expanse of western and southern Colorado. In the 2008 presidential election, those three counties comprised about one-ninth of the total district vote, according to a CQ Politics analysis.
