If Colorado's proposed bipartisan redistribution card is approved, say goodbye to Rep. Lauren Boebert's current district.
The Denver Post reported:
Still, Democrats see the card as an improvement over the original card, which featured a similar partisan breakdown. This divides the conservative Western Slope into two separate districts. Grand Junction and below remain in the 3rd Congressional District, which now extends to the southeast plains, Pueblo and Huerfano Counties.
Boebert, a Republican, represents this district, but her Garfield County home would now be converted into a 2nd Fort Collins.
Rep. Boebert could either move districts or run for office in the new, more liberal district and likely lose their seat.
The Republicans lost Colorado by 13 points in 2020 but would still come out with 4 seats in the House of Representatives. As drawn by an impartial body, the map would share state 4-4 with a swing seat, which would bring Colorado much closer than the election results suggest.
Either way, the card would weaken a rural Republican stronghold and could spell the end of Lauren Boebert in the House of Representatives.
