    The 2024 election may be 14 months away, but things are already heating up in Lauren Boebert’s congressional district – By Sandra Fish and Jesse Paul (Colorado Sun) / Sept 5, 2023

    GOP U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert and Democrat Adam Frisch are raking in cash for a rematch, and outside spenders are airing ads. But both candidates are likely to face primary challenges in this toss-up contest.

    More than a year ahead of the 2024 election, the battle in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District is already heating up.

    Republican U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert faces multiple GOP and Democratic challengers. A liberal dark-money group is spending gobs of money to weaken the congresswoman’s image. And national organizations are preparing to invest heavily in the race.

    While the 3rd District — which spans across the Western Slope into Pueblo and southeastern Colorado — has been written off in recent years as reliably Republican, Boebert’s vulnerability in the GOP-leaning district was made clear by her narrow, 546-vote win in 2022 over Democrat Adam Frisch, a former Aspen city councilman.

    The district is one of just 13 Republican seats across the country rated as a toss-up by Cook Political Report, a nonpartisan election prognosticator, and a recent poll indicated Frisch, who is running again, and Boebert are tied in a hypothetical rematch.
