Colorado lawmakers square off, come under attack as debt ceiling battle intensifies | TRAIL MIX 
A year and a half before the 2024 election, opponents unloaded scathing ad campaigns aimed at the two most vulnerable Colorado House members, U.S. Reps. Lauren Boebert and Yadira Caraveo. The attacks are the latest eruption in the state in an escalating battle over congressional legislation to raise the federal government’s debt limit, with Democrats and Republicans blaming each other for pushing the nation to the brink of an unprecedented, disastrous default the Biden administration is warning could be imminent as soon as the end of the month. Boebert, a Rifle Republican serving her second term, and Caraveo, a Thornton Democrat serving her first term, each won election in November by slim margins and have landed on the opposing parties’ target lists.

Congresswoman Boebert’s ‘Trust the Science’ bill passes House committee 
Congresswoman Lauren Boebert’s bill to delist the gray wolf population passed the House committee. The Trust the Science Act passed the House committee with a 21-16 vote. The bill delisted gray wolves as being a part of the endangered species list. Removing gray wolves from the endangered species list would give local governments more control over how to deal with the population. Currently the gray wolf population is untouchable-once a species is on the endangered list they don’t come off of it without the help of new laws.
Rep. Boebert in Monte Vista: ‘A line in the sand’ 
The congresswoman addressed transgender individuals, saying she was “very inspired that the country would come back from this” because, in looking at the crowd, “there is not one man that I see whose lips are the same color of red as mine and wearing a dress and heels, and that must mean they are not serving Bud Light,” referencing the backlash against Bud Light for featuring Dylan Mulvaney, a transgender actress, and influencer in an ad on social media. That drew a big laugh from the crowd. “We have folks who are trying to censor you, take away your free speech, and now we see Dylan Mulvaney saying it should be illegal to call him a man. Well, sir, your 5 o’clock shadow says otherwise,” she continued.

Trans lawmaker Brianna Titone tried not to stand out. Then a gunman killed 5 at Club Q. 
Titone won a third term in 2022 by more than 8,000 votes, but she knew her success had coincided with a dark chapter for trans people. Over the previous two years, conservative lawmakers had introduced about 280 anti-trans bills nationwide. (In 2023, they would file more than 400.) Colorado hadn’t passed any anti-LGBTQ bills, but one of its representatives in the federal house, Lauren Boebert (R), regularly criticized drag queens, and she called trans women “groomers” and “transvestites.” Titone told herself to keep reaching out to Republicans, but three weeks after the 2022 election, a gunman killed five people at a Colorado Springs gay bar.
