Lauren Boebert Quits Race For For Current Congressional Seat 

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) shocked the nation on Wednesday when she announced she is quitting her campaign for her current congressional seat.

Boebert, who represents Colorado’s 3rd congressional District, revealed that she will be seeking a different congressional seat in the more Republican-friendly 4th District.

Boebert shared the news to her supporters on her X social media page, saying that the move is important to keep maintaining a conservative voice for Colorado in Congress as well as keeping the GOP’s House majority.

“I wanted to let you, my constituents and supporters, hear directly from me about my plans for the 2024 election cycle and the importance of maintaining a conservative voice for Colorado in Congress as well as keeping our Republican House majority,” the lawmaker wrote on X. “I cannot put into words how grateful I am for everyone who has steadfastly stood alongside me over the past year and beyond. I am going to do everything in my power to represent the 3rd District well for the remainder of this term as I work to earn the trust of grassroots conservative voters in the 4th District to represent them in 2025.”

Boebert maintains that the move is right for her and the right decision for those who support the conservative movements.

“I did not arrive at this decision easily,” she said in a video message posted on X. “A lot of prayers, a lot of tough conversations and a lot of perspectives convinced me that this is the best way I can continue to fight for Colorado, for the conservative movement and for my children’s future. I cannot put into words how grateful I am for everyone who has steadfastly stood alongside me in the third District and across America.”

Boebert beat Democrat Adam Frisch by just 546 votes to win a second term in her current congressional seat. However, Boebert’s Democrat opponent has raised over three times more funds than the Republican over the last three months.
