Boebert Announces Scheme to Run in More Republican Leaning District

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) declared her decision to compete for Congress in the more conservative 4th District rather than reelect in Colorado’s 3rd District on Wednesday.

Boebert cited “personal mistakes” and a “pretty difficult year” as the reasons for her decision.

Boebert informed allies via Facebook video:

“Today, I’m announcing my candidacy for the 2024 Republican nomination to represent Colorado’s 4th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives. It’s the right move for me personally and it’s the right decision for those who support our conservative movement.” Boebert said.

“This is the right move for Colorado, for us. Since the first day I ran for public office, I promised I would do whatever it takes to stop the socialists and communists from taking over our country. That means staying in the fight, but it also means not allowing Hollywood elites and progressive money groups to buy the 3rd District, a seat that they have no business owning.” she continued.

“I will not allow dark money that is directed at destroying me personally to steal this seat. It’s not fair to the 3rd District and the conservatives there who have fought so hard for our victories of which I’m incredibly grateful.” Boebert added.

Evidently alluding to the infamous Beetlejuice controversy, which occurred in September and resulted in the congresswoman being expelled from a musical for vaping, disrupting, and getting too intimate with her date, Boebert admitted in the video that she had had “a fairly challenging” year.

The 4th District of Colorado is presently represented by Representative Ken Buck (R-CO), who declared his decision to withdraw from the reelection race last month.

Weeks prior to the Beetlejuice controversy, a poll conducted in August indicated that Boebert was only marginally trailing her Democratic opponent in the 3rd District of Colorado.

In the wake of the Beetlejuice controversy, Jeff Hurd, the Republican primary challenger to Boebert, garnered increased backing from Republican officials within the state.
