Republican Congressman Cory Gardner fended off his Democratic challenger Brandon Shaffer to retain his seat in the fourth congressional district. Gardner easily won the district Tuesday night maintaining a commanding lead over Shaffer.
Colorado’s vast 4th Congressional District is nearly as big as the state of North Carolina. But it now includes different territory then incumbent Republican Cory Gardner won two years ago. Noticeably absent is Larimer County – which redistricting excluded last year. But that’s not stopping Democrat Brandon Shaffer from trying to make inroads in a solidly conservative electorate.
Under sunny skies and a light breeze alumni, faculty and current students gathered to celebrate recent renovations to the Aims Community College campus in Greeley on Wednesday. They also celebrated its 45th anniversary.
