Democrat Adam Frisch came within inches of unseating Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert in 2022 and says he will try again in 2024. Frisch announced his second bid Tuesday in Colorado's 3rd Congressional District. Frisch is a former city council member from Aspen who fell short of Boebert by over 500 votes. The thin margin stirred discussion of Boebert's electoral vulnerability in the district covering the largely rural, conservative-leaning western half the state. Frisch targeted Boebert's political style as "angertainment" and ran as a Democrat on a largely conservative platform focused on bipartisanship.
Lawmakers in Colorado and 10 other states have introduced bills that would force farming equipment manufacturers to provide the tools, software, parts and manuals needed for farmers to do their own repairs.
Colorado lawmakers are wading into the housing crisis with a proposal to free up vacant parcels of state-owned land that could be leased or sold at a discount for affordable housing projects. The proposal is part of a snowballing trend kicked off by cities utilizing city-owned parcels and has since spawned requests to the federal government to open up land for residential development.
