Lauren Boebert will change congressional districts and run in safer GOP territory next year

Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., announced Wednesday that she will seek the GOP nomination next year in a neighboring solidly Republican congressional district, instead of her district where she scored a victory against a Democratic opponent in the 2022 midterms.

Boebert said she would run in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District, where fellow Republican Ken Buck previously announced he would not seek reelection. Last year, Boebert won a second term representing the 3rd Congressional District, defeating his Democratic opponent by fewer than 600 votes.

“This is the right decision for me personally, and it’s the right decision for those who support our conservative movement,” Boebert said in a video posted to Facebook Wednesday.

Boebert’s new district, which she said she would move to next year, is rated as “solidly Republican” by the Cook Political Report with Amy Walter. Her current district was called a “throwaway” by the nonpartisan group before she announced her candidacy for the seat vacated by Buck, a vocal critic of the party’s “MAGA” wing.

Six other Republicans have already entered the primary race in Buck’s district. The 4th Congressional District covers the largely rural eastern part of the state, east of Denver.

Boebert was on track for a likely rematch against former Aspen City Council member Adam Frisch in a district that has become a target for Democratic spending in the 2024 election cycle. Frisch has raised an impressive sum since that he announced he would run again for the seat.

“We have one of the greatest advantages in district-wide identification, fundraising and relationships for any challenger in the country,” Frisch said in a statement Wednesday evening. “From day one of this race, I have been focused on defending rural Colorado’s way of life and providing common-sense solutions to the problems facing families in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District. My goal will remain the same and I look forward to raising these issues with me in Congress in 2024.”

In her video, Boebert also discussed some of the personal challenges she’s faced over the past year, saying, “I’ve made my own personal mistakes, I’ve owned up to them, and I’ve apologized for them. ” Boebert was kicked out of a performance of “Beetlejuice” this year for “vaping, singing [and] causing disruption. » On Wednesday, she called the incident “humiliating and empowering.”
