A Denver judge ruled on Wednesday, April 27, that Don Coram, a Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives 3rd Congressional District seat, can remain on the primary ballot and challenge GOP incumbent Lauren Boebert.
Coram had petitioned onto the ballot and turned almost 2,000 signatures in to the Secretary of State. A petitioner must have 1,500 valid signatures to qualify for the primary ballot. Of the number Coram turned in, 1,536 were validated, but four voters in the district filed a lawsuit challenging that number, claiming some of the signatures the Secretary of State had accepted were actually invalid. The lawsuit specifically challenged 390 of the signatures that had been accepted.
