Lauren Boebert is at risk of losing her Congressional seat in Congress. A new redistricting proposal in Colorado would place the first-term congresswoman in a Democrat district.
According to Fox News:
A proposed redrawing of Colorado’s congressional districts places the residence of Republican U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert within the district of a Democratic congressman, according to reports.
Boebert, 34, was elected in November 2020 to represent Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, but the newly proposed map places her home in the 2nd District, which is represented by U.S. Rep. Joe Neguse.
So, if the redistricting map released tonight holds, looks like I may be running for re-election against . . . Lauren Boebert.

But there is a catch. The United States Constitution does not require members of Congress to represent a district they live in, they just have to live in the state. This means Boebert can run for her current seat in the 3rd district.
