Democratic congressional candidate Levi Tillemann on Tuesday condemned as "bigoted" and "clearly dogwhistle politics" a demand issued by Victor Mitchell, a Republican running for governor of Colorado, that one of his primary opponents — a member of a famous Mormon family that includes Mitt Romney — return all campaign contributions he's received from Utah residents. But Mitchell rejected Tillemann's criticism, insisting that he was merely raising concerned about Utah competing for business with Colorado.
