Who's In, Who's Out for Congress?

  • 18 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

UPDATE: The Colorado Democratic Party confirmed this afternoon that Charles “Chaz” Tedesco failed to meet the 30% threshold for ballot access in CO-08. Yadira Caraveo is thus the Democratic nominee for CO-08 in 2022.

Democrats held most of their congressional assemblies on Tuesday, which means we have a pretty good idea of which candidates are going to be on the Primary ballot in June in the various congressional races in Colorado.

We’re still waiting on announcements regarding petition signatures for a few candidates, as well as the results from a handful of GOP assemblies. Republican congressional assemblies in Districts 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7 are on Friday, April 8.

 

CO-01 (Denver)

Democrats

😀 Incumbent Rep. Diana DeGette qualified via assembly
😐 Neil Walia is still waiting on petition verification

Republicans

😮 No Republican candidate has filed to run in this district

 

 

CO-02 (North and West Colorado)

😀 Incumbent Rep. Joe Neguse qualified via assembly

Republicans

😮 No Republican candidate has filed to run in this district

  1. How do Williams and Keltie compare to Lamborn?

    It isn't a high threshold to be better than him, but we've learned from experience that one can be even worse. CO-5 is probably an easy GOP win for the primary winner, after all.

    1. Don't know Keltie, but I'd say Williams is younger, brasher, more animated (super-low bar), and harder-right than Lamborn. I probably don't agree with him on anything, but he seems fairly sharp when he speaks and states his cases with clarity. He's definitely staking out a far-right position in this race, plus here's a quote from Colorado Politics after assembly:

      "I'm going to be just like Lauren Boebert, though not as pretty," Williams cracked.

      1. Keltie web site paints her as a high school grad, single mother of two, 21 year Navy veteran who believes the future of civilization depends on sealing the Southern border and stopping critical race theory.

        Lamborn would probably do the least damage of the three, if only by sleeping in more.

        1. I must admit, I am disappointed so many people think Don Coram would be an improvement over “Pew Pew”.

          Guys like Coram are responsible for decades of destruction to Colorados’ natural resources. He will work hard to promote the OilyBoyz and, while he isn’t an ignorant blowhard like the present office holder, he will diligently represent resource exploiters everywhere.

          Like I said before…Boebert is an ineffectual, self-centered, show pony who accomplishes nothing except embarrassing her party. In fact, having her in office does more for her opponents than her supporters.

          I repeat… Don Coram will not be an improvement over “Calamity Jane” Boebert. Unless what he says is more important to you than what he does.

  2. We'll update after tomorrow's CO-06 assembly. There are a couple of no-name candidates who have filed to run as Republicans, but we don't know enough about any of them to speculate.
