Rep. Lauren Boebert Announces Shift to Run for Colorado’s 4th Congressional District

Rep. Lauren Boebert unveiled her decision to pivot her candidacy to the 4th Congressional District in the upcoming elections, as she disclosed in a candid video on Facebook on December 27.

The 37-year-old congresswoman, a prominent figure known for her fervent advocacy of conservative principles, acknowledged the weightiness of her resolution, stating, "I did not arrive at this decision easily."

Having served two terms representing Colorado’s expansive 3rd Congressional District, extending from the Western Slope into Pueblo and southeastern Colorado, Boebert aims to redirect her aspirations towards securing victory in the 4th District. This territory encompasses Weld County, Douglas County, and the entirety of eastern Colorado, currently under the stewardship of Rep. Ken Buck from Windsor.

Boebert’s impending shift comes in the wake of Buck’s announcement in November that he would abstain from seeking reelection in 2024, an announcement that has seemingly paved the way for Boebert's strategic maneuver.

Embarking on her announcement video with resolute determination, Boebert asserted, "Today I’m announcing my candidacy for the 2024 Republican nomination to represent Colorado’s 4th Congressional District." She underscored the personal and ideological underpinnings of her decision, portraying it as both an individual imperative and a strategic alignment with the conservative movement she staunchly champions.

Underscoring the gravity of her deliberation process, Boebert emphasized the role of introspection and consultation that guided her towards this significant redirection. "A lot of prayer, a lot of tough conversations, and a lot of perspective convinced me this is the best way I can continue to fight for Colorado, for the conservative movement, and for my children’s future," she elaborated.

Boebert’s previous electoral victory in the 3rd District was a tight triumph, securing her position by a margin of merely 546 votes in a closely contested battle against Democrat Adam Frisch, culminating in a recount of votes.

According to assessments from The Colorado Sun, the 3rd District leans favorably by 9 percentage points towards Republicans. In stark contrast, the 4th District exhibits a more pronounced Republican stronghold, boasting a formidable 27-point Republican advantage.

As Boebert embarks on this strategic shift in her political trajectory, all eyes are now fixed on the unfolding narrative that will shape the upcoming electoral dynamics in both the 3rd and 4th Congressional Districts. The congresswoman's decision carries implications not only for her political career but also for the broader conservative landscape within Colorado’s intricate political tapestry.
