One of Trump’s biggest supporters in the House of Representatives has just won Colorado’s Republican primary.
Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado has just drafted a primary challenger, Sen. Don Coram, in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District in Western Colorado.
The win by Boebart is just another example of how Trump-backed Republicans are doing much better than non-Trump-backed lawmakers.
Boebert won in a landslide fashion gaining 65% of the vote compared to Coram’s 35%

Newsmax had more on the story:
Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., one of the most polarizing members of Congress, beat back a challenge in her primary Tuesday.
Decision Desk HQ, Newsmax’s election results partner, called the race at 9:35 p.m. ET.
Boebert, a staunch defender of the Second Amendment and former President Donald Trump, saw her GOP-leaning 3rd Congressional District in western Colorado become even more Republican after redistricting. She defeated moderate state Rep. Don Coram, a rancher and hemp farmer, who slams what he calls Boebert’s extremism.
Boebert, who had the coveted Trump endorsement in the race, criticized Coram for working with legislative Democrats.
