A would be challenger to GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert has now been forced to drop out of the race due to redistricting issues.

As The Hill reports:


The top challenger to Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) suspended her campaign after a redistricting map was finalized by the courts.

Colorado State Sen. Kerry Donovan (D) announced Friday she was suspending her campaign after the redistricting map drew her outside of the 3rd congressional district Boebert represents.

“While each $15 check in the mail with a memo ‘we believe in you’ or $20 donation at a meet and greet made me more committed by the day, the congressional maps failed to recognize the complexity of rural Colorado and instead divided communities, protected incumbents and ignored Coloradans’ voices,” Donovan said in a statement.

“As a result, there is no viable path forward for me to remain in this race, and I have made the decision to suspend my campaign for Congress,” she added.

Other Democrats, like Rep. Donald Valdez (D), are now lining up to challenge Boebert in 2022 however.

Like in the movie The Godfather. I’ll make him a offer he or she refuse.
