Money pours into early days of Adam Frisch’s second campaign to unseat Rep. Lauren Boebert 
In just over seven weeks since Adam Frisch announced his second campaign to unseat far-right incumbent U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert, he’s boosted his war chest by well over seven figures, his campaign announced Thursday. To date, the former Aspen City councilman has raised $1.7 million, “shattering expectations,” Frisch said in a statement. That much money shows a clear break from the slow start his 2022 campaign had, largely due to the national attention he earned by almost unseating Boebert. During the first quarter of that campaign, Frisch had raised $232,575, federal data shows.

House Democrats include Lauren Boebert on initial list of targeted GOP-held seats 
National Democrats will work to unseat U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert in next year’s election, the House Democratic campaign arm said Monday in an announcement unveiling an initial list of targeted GOP-held seats. The Colorado Republican from Silt, who narrowly won reelection to a second term last year, is among the Republican incumbents representing districts the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee considers vulnerable in the 2024 cycle, the committee said. A DCCC spokesman suggested that Boebert’s national profile and prominent alignment with former President Donald Trump could work against her.

A well-funded, dark-money political group that opposed Cory Gardner reemerges to take on Lauren Boebert in 2024 
A dark-money political group aligned with Democrats that worked to block Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner’s reelection two years ago has been revived to target GOP U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert’s as she vies for a third term representing Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District. Rocky Mountain Values, a nonprofit that doesn’t have to disclose its donors, is among the first major political groups to target Boebert’s 2024 reelection effort, though it likely won’t be the last after the congresswoman narrowly won a second term in November. The organization kicked off its latest campaign Monday in Durango, the same day the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced it will target Boebert next year.

Boebert Touts Record As Champion of Water Conservation, Cites Bill She Voted Against 
On Tuesday afternoon, U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO)’s office sent out a press release that contained the following sentence: “Congresswoman Boebert is a strong advocate for rural water storage projects, and in the House FY 2023 appropriations package, she secured $229.26 million for water conservation and delivery projects and an additional $50 million for rural water projects that will help combat western drought.” However, according to records from the House of Representatives, H. R. 2617 – an appropriations bill which allocated spending for the 2023 fiscal year – passed a vote mostly along party lines in December. Lauren Boebert was one of 200 house Republicans who voted not to pass the bill. This is becoming something of a yearly pattern: last year, the Durango Herald reported that Boebert took credit for nine funding wins, coming from an appropriations bill that she also voted against.

White House accuses GOP of helping Mexican drug cartels by targeting ATF 
Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., who once owned a restaurant named Shooters Grill, where the servers openly carried firearms, concurred, saying she was “still waiting to hear a good reason why the ATF should remain an agency at all.” Some, like Rep. Eric Burlison, R-Mo., have suggested going even further by both defunding the ATF and eliminating the National Firearms Act, the primary legal authority for the agency.

Colorado Democrats elect Shad Murib as state party chair 
“Sheriffs across the state refuse to enforce our gun safety laws. We have Republican county commissioners who won’t build affordable housing. They won’t enforce the oil and gas laws meant to keep our neighborhoods and schools safe. And Republican county clerks are straight up inviting corruption into their election offices,” Murib told the roughly 500 Democrats gathered at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel for the party’s biennial reorganization meeting. “Republicans have majorities in these seats across the state, and I believe the next frontier of Democratic politics must be local.” In addition to a focus on legislative and county offices, Murib said a goal of the party in 2024 will be to defend Democratic Rep. Yadira Caraveo in the battleground 8th Congressional District and work to unseat Republican U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert, who won reelection last year in the 3rd Congressional District by the closest margin in the country in a congressional race.
