His district, Colorado Congressional District 6, is one of the most competitive in the country. Trump lost the district in 2016, but Coffman still won by 9 points. He has defied odds election after election, but this year is expected to be a blue wave and Democrats are spending more than $8 million to defeat Coffman.
