Dems Plan To Use Gerrymandering To Get Rid Of Star GOP Congresswoman
She can be credited for single handily ending Beto O’Rourke political career and now Democrats are plotting to get rid of her.
Democrats in Colorado are planning on using gerrymandering to get rid of GOP star Lauren Boebert.
In her district there isn’t a Democrat in the state that can beat the small business, gun toting Republican so the state legislator – run by Democrats – are planning on altering her district.
Redistricting update: First it was adding part of Boulder, now it’s all of Boulder.
The Dems are so worried about me I suspect the next redistricting map will include Berkeley, California, too.

The new redistricting map would move Rep. Boebert’s address into a solid blue district represented by Joe Neguse.
From the Denver Post:
The proposal from the commission staff on Friday would rearrange the political geography as part of the once-a-decade redistricting process. It’s the first test of the commission model approved by voters in 2018. Staff had released a possible congressional map in June, but Friday’s was its first drawn off the official, newly released Census data that is required to be used for redistricting.The map will be followed by a series of hearings, along with a map of state legislative districts. Both may change significantly in the weeks to come, as the commission races to meet an end-of-the-month deadline to approve maps.
The congressional map keeps the four Democratic seats relatively safe, as well as preserving three as solidly Republican. It would add a new swing seat — the 8th Congressional District — running from Adams County to Greeley, an area that voted Democratic by 1.9 percentage points in last year’s Senate election.
That could make the final breakdown of the state’s congressional districts 4-4, an underwhelming split for Democrats in a state they won by 13 points in last year’s presidential election.
Boebert would be given the option to move back into her own district or she can challenge Neguse.
“As a Coloradan, I hate the map,” former State Sen. Greg Brophy, a Republican who lives in Wray, said. “As a Republican, it could be a lot worse.”
The sole purpose of the redistricting appears to revolve around getting rid of Boebert who has shaken up Washington since arriving.
“I have legislation to IMPEACH both Biden and Harris. And Nancy Pelosi can follow them out the freaking door.”
