Colorado counties

Hi folks–
I’m using Overpass QL to gather county bounaries for various states.
The query shown here works just fine for some states (e.g. Iowa):

out geom;

(Iowa’s state_fips is 19).

But when I change the value to “08” (Colorado’s state_fips code) and run the query, I only get back two counties (Delta and Mesa) out of an expected 64.

If anyone here knows what I’m doing wrong, or can point me in a better direction, I’d appreciate it.

Many have a state_fips of 8. A better way to do this is (because it uses regular OSM tags):

{{geocodeArea:Colorado }}->.searchArea;

That helped, thanks, I appreciate it.
