Lauren Boebert Election Results – Live: Republican says ‘of course’ she’ll win as Colorado election may go to recount
Frisch is challenging Boebert in a tight race in Colorado
Lauren Boebert said she is confident of retaining her House seat as she widens her lead against Democratic challenger Adam Frisch — but the unexpected upset race is still too close to win.
When asked by reporters if she expects to win Thursday’s race, the Republican incumbent replied: “Of course I expect to win.” It will be great.”
Ms. Boebert now leads by 1,122 votes in what is shaping up to be a surprisingly tight race for a seat in the US House of Representatives. Colorado3rd congressional district.
After trailing for much of the race, the Donald Trump ally returned to the lead on Thursday, now leading with 50.2 percent of the vote to Frisch’s 49.8 percent, with 99 percent of the vote.
The race could be headed for an automatic recount if the winning side does not win by more than 0.5 percent.
The tight race came as a surprise to both Republicans and Democrats — as well as pollsters — after the controversial gun-toting congresswoman was expected to enjoy a comfortable re-election.
Adam Frisch raced against Boebert’s ‘anger’
Before Election Day, Adam Frisch said The Independent that he decided to run against a MAGA Republican in the race for her seat in the US House of Representatives in response to her “fury.”
He said that this phrase is what “Representatives Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene and a lot of other people — and there are some on the left — who use this kind of just … yelling and screaming. I mean, a lot of time on Twitter, a lot of time on cable news networks and not really focusing on the job at hand.”
Mr. Frisch, a currency trader who served at Aspen, Colorado of the city council for eight years, he added that he finds some of her bizarre comments “disgusting and unethical towards America”.
“I was thinking, you know, if a moderate, pragmatic, pro-business Democrat could get through the Democratic primary, which wouldn’t be easy — and it wasn’t — I thought I could build a coalition,” he said.

Adam Frisch calls for ‘respect’ for an army whose votes have yet to be counted

“In particular, we must honor and respect those who serve our country by ensuring that every military ballot is counted,” he tweeted.

Speaking to reporters at the event, she tried to push the GOP’s worse-than-expected performance in her home state onto big-ticket candidates.
“I don’t know if there wasn’t enough enthusiasm for our top candidates for governor and Senate, or what happened there, but there was a lot of swing in the vote there,” she said.
Colorado Democratic Gov. Jared Polis and Sen. Michael Bennet comfortably defeated their Republican rivals in their re-election races.

We’ve read Lauren Boebert’s book so you don’t have to
Imagine you’ve just bought Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert’s new autobiographical book, “My American Life.”
You rush to her restaurant, Shooter’s Bar and Grill, to start flipping through its pages. The waitress – her gun dangling from her hip holster – drops the menu on the table. You look over him, your eyes settling on the pork sliders. Fake news claims that concertgoers caused diarrhea back in 2017. But you didn’t come all the way to Rifle, Colorado, because of a lie. You want the truth — and it is in your hands. You dive.
