Republican CD-4 Candidate Deborah Flora Launches Women’s Coalition 

Parker, CO – As other Republican candidates prepare for the special election nomination process, conservative candidate Deborah Flora is uniting a core constituency ahead of the Primary Election: women voters. Flora, who today secured her spot on the primary ballot, faces off against nearly a dozen men and one woman, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert.  

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Flora rallied an event of female supporters that will serve as an important voting block in the Primary. Speakers included local elected officials, business women, and community leaders. 

The Women’s Coalition Chair former Lt. Governor Jane Norton said, “I’m honored to chair Deborah Flora’s Women’s Coalition because the contrast is so clear. She has a fresh and unparalleled conservatism that goes beyond the traditional party constituencies, and her principled leadership in her home of CD-4 shows that she will be a strong voice for us all.”

“Throughout my life and career, I have been blessed to have the example and influence of amazing, strong women who have been a source of inspiration and encouragement. That is something I hope to model for my daughter,” said Flora. “As a Congresswoman, I want to make her proud and be a principled conservative leader in Washington that all of my fellow citizens and neighbors in CD-4 can be proud of. Also, as a mom, businesswoman and member of this community, I understand and will focus on the issues affecting families in this district everyday.”

Flanked by dozens of women at her launch event, Flora’s focus on service, character and integrity in Congress remained a key contrast. 

“Look, I embrace terms like feisty and fiery for women in politics because what’s happening in our country right now is too important for business as usual,” said Aurora City Councilwoman Danielle Jurinsky. “I’m supporting Deborah Flora because she’s a feisty, fiery woman and changemaker with a vision and the integrity and drive to get our country back on track.”

Newly elected Aurora City Councilman Stephanie Hancock agreed, saying that Flora “understands the issues that hurt our communities and will speak truth to power. She is ready to serve and absolutely the best candidate to represent our shared beliefs and goals in our nation’s capital.”

Obviously, the most controversial candidate in the CD-4 Republican Primary is Boebert, who is the only other woman in the race to succeed Ken Buck. Boebert shocked the political establishment in 2020 when she defeated incumbent Congressman Scott Tipton in CD-3. However, her campaign manager at the time, Laura Carno, has now put her support behind Flora in CD-4 because Flora’s character differentiates her. 

“Just when we thought Congress’ approval ratings couldn’t get any lower, we see representatives putting their own self-interests over the needs of their constituents and the American people,” Carno said. “We need people like Deborah Flora who have the conservative principles and strength of character to honorably serve the district’s voters. She’ll be the leader we can trust to perform her duties faithfully and with integrity, traits that are lacking in Washington today.”
