SOME 4TH CD HISTORY:
In 2008, with Larimer County as part of the 4th Congressional District — and with Longmont’s help — we elected Betsy Markey as our US Representative, who defeated 3-term republican, Marilyn Musgrave. Then the district lines changed in 2010, creating the 4th CD we have today, encompassing the entire eastern half of the state, dropping Larimer County, and gerrymandering Longmont into within the district lines. At the time, Longmont was voting progressively more blue — that’s why we call Longmont “the bump to the left” (see “District Maps” widget)
The 4th Congressional District has a long history with Cory Gardner, who defeated Markey in 2010, and was our US House Rep. until he ran for the US Senate Seat in 2014 and defeated Mark Udall. Ken Buck was elected as our US Rep for CD4 that same year. We’ve been trying to beat him ever since. Congressional district lines will change again after the 2020 Census.
Ask any previous Democratic candidate for the 4th CD, Longmont Area Democrats have been at the forefront of bringing attention to, and getting out the vote for, the 4th Congressional District. MIDTERMS MATTER. VOTING YOUR WHOLE BALLOT MATTERS.

Longmont Area Democrats does not publicly endorse any candidate in a non partisan race (city council), or any Democratic candidate in the primary phase of any election. We do advocate for folks to be informed about their ballot, to vote in every election, and to vote the whole ballot. We will update this list and future lists about the candidates running. Our primary objective is to elect Democrats and progressives in city, county, boards & commissions, state legislature, state, US Senate, US Congressional, and US Presidential offices — wherever possible.
