Republican candidate drops out of the race in a move no one saw coming


2024 is only a few days away. But the pressure on some candidates is already through the roof.

And this Republican candidate dropped out of the race in a move no one saw coming.

The 2024 elections will be make-or-break for both Republicans and Democrats.

Both parties are looking to win the presidency, of course, but they are also hoping to win majorities in both the U.S. House and Senate.

Currently, Republicans have just a small majority in the House. But that majority was almost even smaller after Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) barely squeaked out a win in her congressional race in November 2022.

Boebert only won her race in Colorado’s 3rd District by just several hundred votes.

That’s why she’s decided to drop out of the race for the 3rd District and instead run in Colorado’s 4th District.

The congresswoman’s announcement came in the form of a video which was posted on social media.

“It’s the right decision for me personally and it’s the right decision for those who support our conservative movement,” Boebert said.

The National Republican Congressional Caucus (NRCC) agreed with Boebert’s decision and felt that it would help the 3rd District stay red.

“Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the national Democrats who spent all year wishing Colorado’s 3rd was winnable. Republicans will hold this seat,” Delanie Bomar – an NRCC spokeswoman – said in a statement.

Colorado’s 4th District will be a much easier race for Boebert to win than her current seat.

Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) won the district by 24 points before announcing his retirement recently.

Boebert’s time in office this year has come with quite a bit of controversy.

The U.S. Rep. was kicked out of a theatre back in September for allegedly vaping and causing a disturbance.

Incidents like this have led to her growing unpopularity among Coloradans in the district who almost successfully voted her out of office in 2022.

But now her move to a safer district might have just saved her political career.

And it will also help Republicans in their efforts to keep a majority in the U.S. House after the 2024 elections.
