( – Rep. Lauren Boebert who was widely expected to be easily able to retain her position in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District only managed to win her midterms with only 564 votes.

Don Coram, a former state senator who had tried challenging Boebert in the GOP primary stated that with the way that the district was designed the Republicans should have had an easy victory. Still, Republicans struggled with winning in many of the states they were expected to guarantee wins in during the 2022 midterm elections.

Many are now fearing that a similar thing might occur in 2024, especially since there is a notable portion of the Republican party that does not ascribe to the MAGA ideology that Trump is promoting.

An AP VoteCast national survey showed that these Republicans in large part also chose not to support House Republican candidates during the recent midterm. A portion of them have also opposed Trump and ended up voting for Democrat Joe Biden for president in 2020 and Democratic House candidates in 2022.

Democrat Adam Frisch recently said that this created a “fairly unique” opening for more conservative Democrats who would entice Colorado voters who did not support Boebert’s aggressive political style. He added that most of his campaign was focused on convincing others that he “was a safe enough choice” and to take the chance to vote for a non-Republican. Frisch is planning to run again in 2024.
