Lauren Boebert's Haters Hardest Hit as Congresswoman Receives Some Good News

We reported Thursday on how the race between Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) and her Democratic challenger Adam Frisch was headed to an automatic recount thanks in part to a questionable absentee/mail-in ballot practice called “ballot curing,” which resulted in Boebert’s already-slim lead being cut in half – to 554 votes at last check.


But though the recount is one that is required by Colorado law, Frisch announced on Friday that he had called Boebert to concede, and said in so many words that there is no pathway to victory for his campaign at this point:

In a video call with reporters, Frisch said that he had called Boebert to offer his concession. He said that while the race appeared to be headed for a mandatory recount, “the likelihood of this recount changing more than a handful of votes is very small.”

“We are not asking for this recount. It is one that the citizens of Colorado mandate through our election system,” he said, telling supporters not to donate to his campaign for the recount effort.

“Please save your money for your groceries, your rent, your children,” he said.

Further, though the Associated Press and other national media outlets have yet to officially call the race – citing the recount process, the Colorado Sun has, and declared Boebert the winner:

Republican U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert won reelection in Colorado’s GOP-leaning 3rd Congressional District on Friday, barely overcoming voters’ forceful rebuke of her highly controversial tenure in Washington over the past two years to help her party expand its slim majority in the U.S. House.

Though the Sun portrayed the unexpectedly close nature of the race as a “rebuke” from voters, it left out the fact that there was a “blue wave” of sorts throughout the entire state this election cycle, not just in Boebert’s district specifically:


Part of the story here is the fact that Colorado as a whole was hit with a blue wave this election, which washed out even into Boebert’s red district. Not only did Democrats win big-ticket races for governor and Senate, they also won competitive House races in the 7th District and newly created 8th District and flipped seven seats in the state legislature, giving the state GOP the smallest minority it ever had.

Not only that, but the demographics of Boebert’s district are not the ones you typically find in what are traditionally viewed as deep red districts:

Like the rest of the state, a plurality of voters in the 3rd District — 40 percent — are unaffiliated, according to an analysis by the Colorado Independent Redistricting Commissions. Some of those voters still reliably vote for one party or the other, but a portion are swing voters or moderates who don’t find candidates too far down either end of the political spectrum appealing. After the 2020 election, we noted that Boebert’s district didn’t look like the districts where some of the other more hardline Republicans won: It’s less white, less evangelical Christian and less Republican. This may be why Boebert won with just 51 percent of the vote in 2020 (and why former President Donald Trump carried it by just 5.5 points). Even though the 3rd District has a solid Republican lean, it has been represented by a Democrat as recently as the early 2010s (Democrat John Salazar served 2005-2011), and the last two elections point to some fissures in the Republican stronghold.


With it being close to a sure thing at this point that Boebert will return to Washington, D.C. for a second term, thoughts and prayers go out to her sexist haters in the MSM and on the left (but I repeat myself) who thought early on that Frisch would be able to pull off the upset and that Boebert would be reduced to starting an “OnlyFans” account:

Bless their hearts.
