Former President Donald Trump endorsed Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) on Saturday to represent Colorado’s 4th Congressional District in the House of Representatives.

Trump offered the congresswoman his endorsement over several other Republican candidates running for the nomination in the eastern Colorado district. The front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination called Boebert a “Proven Conservative and Effective Leader who delivers for Colorado, and our America First agenda” in a post on Truth Social.

“Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is a trusted America First Fighter, and has my Complete and Total Endorsement for Colorado’s 4th Congressional District,” Trump wrote.

The race is to replace outgoing Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) in a district more conservative than Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, which Boebert has represented since 2021. The nonpartisan Cook Political Report rates the 4th District “R+13” compared to “R+7” for the 3rd District, where Boebert won reelection by 546 votes in 2022.

In 2020, Trump won Colorado’s 4th District by nearly 16 percentage points, and Buck won it by more than 24 in 2022. Even though it is a safely Republican district, Boebert may have a tougher time remaining in the House with the crowded GOP field.

A straw poll after a January debate showed the two-term representative in fifth place out of 10 candidates. She also is trying to live down her disruptive behavior at a play in Denver last year and accusations of being a carpetbagger.

In a post to X on Saturday, Boebert said she was honored to have the endorsement of Trump, who she referred to as “the greatest President our country has ever known.”

“It will be such a privilege to work alongside him in 2024 to deliver results for Colorado & get the entire country back on track,” Boebert wrote.

The Republican primary in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District is scheduled for June 25.
