2024: Lauren Boebert to Change Congressional Districts

Republican Representative for Colorado, Lauren Boebert, has recently made an announcement to run for a different congressional district for the upcoming elections, as revealed by the lawmaker on Dec. 27.

The 37-year-old Boebert shared the news of her intended switch in a video posted on Facebook, emphasizing that the decision was one that came after much consideration and was not taken lightly. She currently serves as the representative for the 3rd Congressional District, covering parts of Colorado’s Western Slope, Pueblo, and southeastern Colorado.

However, she has now set her eyes on Colorado’s 4th Congressional District, which spans Weld County, Douglas County, and all of eastern Colorado, currently represented by Rep. Ken Buck. Buck, who had previously declared he would not seek reelection in 2024, opened the door for Boebert to announce her plans.

In the video, Boebert expressed her firm intention in seeking the Republican nomination to represent Colorado’s 4th Congressional District, deeming it a personal and strategic move that aligns with the conservative movement that she staunchly supports.

The decision to switch congressional districts stemmed from a lot of deliberation and soul-searching for the lawmaker, who emphasized that it was made with careful consideration for the future, Colorado, and her family.

Previously winning her seat in the 3rd Congressional District by a narrow margin, Boebert’s plan to run in the 4th District was met with skepticism due to a strong Democratic contender’s substantial fundraising efforts. With the 3rd District being a battleground, the move appeared strategic on the lawmaker’s part to have a better chance of securing a victory in 2024.

Boebert further alluded to her personal life challenges, including her recent divorce and public controversies, which she acknowledged and apologized for. Despite the tumultuous year, she expressed gratitude for the unwavering support that she has received from her constituents and fellow Americans.

It is worth noting that Boebert’s decision to seek reelection in a different congressional district has sparked questions due to her residence being outside of the 4th District, as federal law only requires representation of the state, not the specific district’s physical residence. However, she remains determined to relocate to the 4th District in 2024 as she embarks on this new chapter in her life and political career.

Against a backdrop of personal and political challenges, Boebert’s bold move reflects her resilience and determination to continue fighting for the conservative cause that she holds dear. As she enters this new phase of her career, the lawmaker’s announcement has undoubtedly stirred up intrigue and interest in the upcoming elections.
