JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Colorado Republican Rep. Mike Coffman lost his reelection bid Tuesday, pushing Democrats one seat closer to retaking control of the House of Representatives.

NBC News and CNN called the race for Democrat Jason Crow.

Coffman was expected to lose his race in his Democratic-leaning district outside of Denver. The Congressional Leadership Fund canceled its TV advertising reservations for Coffman in late September.

The Republican nominee faced intense backlash even before President Trump took office, with constituents showing up in droves at his town halls to urge him to protect Obamacare.
