The Field Is Clear: Huge Break For Yadira Caraveo

  • 11 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

 

State Representative, Pediatrician, and Congressional candidate Yadira Caraveo.

The Colorado Sun’s Sandra Fish reports on the big news from the Democratic CD-8 congressional district assembly, where state Rep. Yadira Caraveo appears to have held off challenger Adams County commish Chaz Tedesco, avoiding a primary ahead of what’s set to be one of the nation’s hottest congressional races in the 2022 midterms:

State Rep. Yadira Caraveo secured the Democratic nomination in Colorado’s new 8th Congressional District on Tuesday, avoiding a costly primary and allowing her to build up campaign cash in what is gearing up to be one of the nation’s most competitive congressional races this year.

The Thornton lawmaker defeated Adams County Commissioner Chaz Tedesco with 71% of the delegate votes cast at the 8th District Democratic assembly, which was held virtually. Tedesco secured 29% of the delegate vote, just short of the 30% he needed to make the primary ballot.

“I’m excited to continue building a winning coalition so that I can be a strong advocate for families and neighbors across Adams, Weld and Larimer counties in Congress next year,” Caraveo said in a written statement.

Assuming these results hold up it’s a tremendous coup for Caraveo, providing her with a much longer runway to organize her campaign while Republican opponents spend the next three months attacking one another. Caraveo was always the moral favorite in the Democratic primary, and now she has crucial time and space to up her practical game before plunging into a national marquee congressional race. By a vote of 71-29% with no petitions in reserve to save Tedesco, Caraveo turned her assembly experience into an unexpected best-case scenario.

And that bodes well for her. We’re adjusting our expectations accordingly.

    1. What .. you don't expect other candidates to follow Lori Saine's advice and simply endorse her? 

       

      Yesterday, she tweeted

      Earlier today it was confirmed that my Democrat opponent in the November General Election is radical Marxist Democrat, Yadira Caraveo.

      1.  she's assuming the primary win, and

      2. she's pulling out the "radical Marxist Democrat" card early.

        1. Correct, it's also an interest of institutional policy. Do I detect your interests are entirely "squaresville, man," since you view the issue as black and white?

        2. I never said it was black and white.  I don’t use recreational drugs because they give shit for brains. I support legal pot because prohibition is a failure.  I have always advocated british style legal heroin because it takes the profit out of that evil trade.

          As a rule, regulation is better than prohibition.  But some are so deadly, like meth and fentenal, that prohibition is the only viable path.

          It’s a case by case situation.

  1. Impressive win for Camaro.  The bloodletting by Republicans over the next three months is going to on par with watching a train wreck in slow motion.

  2. Not surprised. Caraveo came to my tiny CD8 Caucus site to speak. Tedesco sent a text. Tells you all you really need to know about them as candidates.

    As for "radical Marxist Democrat," Saine might as well wait for the Second Coming. Neither are going to happen in our lifetimes.
