4. Hopefully, the anti-crazy crowd in that district can win out...

I'm assuming we have a Dem running for that seat?

8. Looks like Diane Mitsch-Bush

https://dianeforcolorado.com/

The district is growing as folks migrate to the Western Slope, so she has a decent shot if supported financially.

12. I just looked into it and you might well be correct here.

The local R's might have just shot themselves in the foot. Let's hope it unfolds this way in November. 🤞

13. Sabato just moved it to LEAN-R

Any improved turnout here will help Hickenlooper's Senate race. Diane Bush is now on my support list.

5. The GOP is rapidly becoming a regional fringe party.

The few that will be left will be the anti-vaxxer, QAnon, Gun totin’, mouth breathin’, conspiratorial nitwits elected from the shit holes of America.

20. 33 or 34 (she was 33 as of December 2019)

She is also bat-shit cray hard RW

Lauren Boebert, the owner and operator of a Western Slope restaurant where all staffers openly carry guns, announced on Sunday a conservative primary challenge to Republican U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton.

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, The Squad and the rest of these left-wing lunatics are taking a wrecking ball to our country while our current representative stays utterly silent,” Boebert said in a statement announcing her candidacy in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District.

“The Squad” is a group of four new, liberal Democratic congresswomen of color that includes Ocasio-Cortez, a U.S. representative from New York.

“Hard-working, patriotic Americans like you and me don’t want the Green New Deal and socialized medicine,” Boebert said. “Every time AOC and the rest of The Squad pipes up with another crazy idea, I will remind them that our belief in God, country and family are what built the United States of America into the greatest nation the world has ever known.”

“I knew that we have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and if you don’t have a way to defend your life, what good are the rest of your rights?” Boebert said.

If elected, Boebert said she would oppose regulation of natural resources and advocate for lower health care insurance by “allowing it to be sold across state lines.”

“If Congressman Tipton was doing an effective job, I wouldn’t feel the need to run,” Boebert said. “But AOC (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) and the rest of The Squad are going unchallenged. Conservatives want a fighter who will put these people back in their place and stand up for what we believe in, and I believe that over the years, I’ve been pretty darn good at that.”

17. QAnon needs to be designated a terrorist organisation, flat out. They are extraordinarily dangerous

and have millions of adherents. The dupes have been scientifically brainwashed for years now, and the programming runs so deep I have no doubt whatsoever they could be called forth to action sedition and violent actions nationwide.

19. R +6 district

Not out of reach but tough climb. There are some good D areas in here including the city of Pueblo. If she's too far for some moderate Rs (assuming there are such a thing anymore) and there is phenomenal D turnout we could win it. There are some areas with high Latino and Native populations in this district as well.
