DENVER (CBS4) – Rep. Mike Coffman has retained his seat in Colorado’s Congressional District 6 after a hard fought political battle with Democratic challenger Joe Miklosi.
The race featured numerous attack ads against Coffman, a Republican, many for what the ads claimed were his conservative positions on women’s issues.
Coffman’s team celebrated his win on Election Night in Arapahoe County, a swing county in the swing state of Colorado.
Coffman’s district now includes all of the city of Aurora, which means it is a much larger mix of left leaning and right leaning voters than previously.
“It is a very different district, with a very different set of issues, and I think that that is going to be reflective of a different focus in terms of what I look at,” Coffman told CBS4 after giving his victory speech.
Miklosi’s campaign sent CBS4 a statement just after 1 a.m. on Wednesday congratulating Coffman and wishing “him and the next Congress success to solve our nation’s most pressing problems.”
