Greeley Tribune: State Rep. Gabe Evans enters race for US Rep. Yadira Caraveo’s seat

Colorado Rep. Gabe Evans on Wednesday announced he’s entering the race next year for the U.S. House seat representing Colorado’s 8th Congressional District.

Evans, who represents voters in west Greeley, western parts of Weld and part of Adams County, is the second Republican to enter the race for the seat held by U.S. Rep. Yadira Caraveo, a Democrat who won the seat last year by a margin of less than 1%. The 8th Congressional District includes parts of Weld, Larimer and Adams counties.
