The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is targeting the state’s new 8th District congresswoman for defeat next year claiming she’s so far left that even Coloradans will want to be rid of her, reports Campfire Colorado.
“Caraveo is a radical who wants to hike our taxes, defund border security, and kill Colorado’s energy industry,” said NRCC Spokeswoman Delanie Bomar. “After just a few short months in Congress, it’s clear she is too extreme for Colorado and the NRCC is ready to remind voters of her real record.”
Caraveo just barely slid past Republican opponent Barb Kirkmeyer last year by less than one percentage point.
As one of the NRCC’s top targeted races, that means the party is willing to invest financially in the race to build on the Republican majority and reverse Biden’s crippling economy.
The target on the 8th Congressional District came on the heels of the Democrat Party’s decision to put more energy into Caraveo’s race to protect the freshman’s unsteady seat.
Without a hint of irony, the chairwoman of the Democrat’s congressional campaign committee said they need to win back control of the House because Republicans are just in politics for the power.
And as everyone knows, Democrats just hate having power.
