Alex Walker, a gay Democrat who hopes to take Boebert on in this year’s election, has made a splash with a campaign video that shows fecal matter falling from the skies and ends with him declaring, “Colorado needs a bull, not a bullshitter.”The video has racked up hundreds of thousands of views across various social media platforms since Walker released it in late February, but there’s more to his campaign than that.

He has serious views on serious issues, and he’s confident he can defeat Boebert, who he considers an embodiment of everything that’s wrong with the Republican Party, even in the GOP-dominated Third Congressional District of Colorado.“I feel great about our chances,” he tells The Advocate. “This district is the soul of America.”Walker, 31, was the first candidate to file nominating petitions for the Democratic primary in the Third District, while at least seven others are aiming for a spot on the ballot.

A couple of candidates are planning to challenge Boebert in the Republican primary as well. The primaries will be held June 28.Walker describes himself as a moderate Democrat.
