NextImg:Lauren Boebert's narrow midterm election victory makes her a target for Democrats

Democrats are setting their sights on the Colorado House seat held by Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), hoping to unseat the firebrand Republican after nearly upsetting her in the midterm elections.

Adam Frisch announced a challenge to Boebert in February, setting the stage for a rematch between him and the Colorado Republican after he narrowly lost by 546 votes in the deep red district in 2022. The narrow margin made the race one of the tightest races of the midterm cycle.

LAUREN BOEBERT CHALLENGER RAISES MORE THAN $1.7 MILLION IN FIRST QUARTER

“I can’t believe she had almost the most embarrassing loss in 20 years, and she hasn’t changed one iota,” Frisch told the Hill. “She’s actually doubled down on crazy.”

Frisch reported a strong start to his 2024 campaign, raking in more than $1.7 million during the first fundraising quarter and leaving him with $1.3 million cash on hand as of March 31. Boebert has not yet released her fundraising report for the first quarter.

However, Frisch could face an uphill battle as Boebert is likely to receive outsize support from national Republicans as she has emerged as one of the party’s most high-profile members over the last four years. During the midterm cycle, Boebert raised more than $8 million in contributions.

Boebert’s success could also be determined by Donald Trump’s influence over the 2024 election, as the Colorado Republican has closely aligned herself with the former president and has promoted his claims that the 2020 election was stolen. Trump now faces a slew of criminal charges in New York, which some political experts say could weigh down her campaign.

“Donald Trump, he’s just completely toxic in this state,” David Flaherty, a political pollster in Colorado, told the outlet. “When he’s anywhere near the discussion, he’s just a walking turnout machine for Democrat and younger voters.”

Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District race is expected to be competitive again in 2024, with the nonpartisan Cook Political Report rating it as “Lean Republican.” Democrats are expected to focus more heavily on the district in the next election cycle, with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee listing it as one of the top 33 targets in 2024.
