As Of the Colorado Newsline Sarah Wilson It is learned that Rajya Sen made the announcement from the Foreign Secretary’s office yesterday afternoon. Don Quorum Petitions have been approved and he will appear in the Republican primary ballot on June 28 in a two-way showdown against the new GOP train rack that continues to destroy Republicans. Lauren Boebert:
State Sen. Don Quorum will face incumbent Lauren Boebert in the early June ballot in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, election officials confirmed Tuesday.
The Montreux Republican received 1,563 valid signatures on his petition, exceeding the threshold of 1,500 signatures. He will be Boebert’s only opponent in June after Marina Zimmerman failed to qualify through a party rally and decided not to continue the written campaign.
Quorum thanked all those who signed his petition, which he called “grassroots propaganda.”
And through it Grand Junction Sentinel’s Charles AshbyAfter some initial lip service to ignore Boebert’s vitriol, Boebert launched a full-blown pre-emptive (not to mention deficit-defying) attack in January with fear, promising to take the quorum Boebert’s “lie” directly – which means he’s running against Boebert. Passively not side by side:
Quorum re-announced during a Grand Junction press conference in January that he would seek a GOP nomination against Boebert, who was first elected to Congress in 2020.
A Montrose resident said he did it because he disliked how Boebert had behaved since he came into office.
“I look forward to establishing a direct record of the lies that Lauren Boebert and her supporters have committed,” Quorum said in a statement. “I will sue the primary voters as to why I am the most qualified candidate to represent them and their families. Lots. Let’s end Lauren’s first term in Congress. ” [Pols emphasis]
This is the fighting spirit anyone wants to see Boebert ousted in 2022 কিন্তু but what can be done about it? The answer lies in two more questions: are CD-3 Republicans tired of Boebert’s high visibility, low productivity representation, and whether the majority of voters in the district will be strong enough to cross the quorum to win Republican primary ballots. Boebert’s foundational strength.
To be clear, this No. The so-called “Operation Chaos” gambit became popular late on, urging Democrats to re-register as independents to participate in the Republican primary. Rush Limbaugh Which history shows is an empty threat. But there is an argument as to exactly what Boebert’s extremism is Proposal 108 Passed by Colorado voters in 2016, allowing unconnected voters to participate in any party primary.
And yes, that’s why John Eastman And a far-right faction in the Colorado GOP has sued the party unsuccessfully to exclude early 2022 voters after failing to take that step on its own. Their failure may be most effective in the CD-3 Republican primary, while among the responsible Republicans in the CD-5 primary. Doug Lamburn And the far-right rival representative. Dave Williams Unconnected voters are more likely to protect those in power. In both cases there is a complete digestive tract.
And that’s exactly what Don Quorum wants. In this R + 9 Republican-leaning district, the quorum represents the best mathematical shot to undo the bipartisan embarrassment of Colorado, and the Democrats will have it before they get their own.
