Right-Wing Firebrand Lauren Boebert Takes Lead in CO House Election

In Colorado’s Third Congressional District, incumbent Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert has pulled ahead of Democrat Adam Frisch with 98 percent of precincts reporting.

Boebert’s race has drawn attention not only because the Republican margin in the House of Representatives is smaller than Republicans envisioned prior to Election Day, but also because Boebert has become a lightning rod for left-wing criticism due to her outspoken personality and brash social media presence.

As of this writing, Boebert has 157,743 votes and Frisch has 157,357 votes — a gap of 386 votes.

Boebert, a former Democrat and small business owner who advocates for gun rights, has irked left-wing critics with her embrace of former President Donald Trump, her attacks on the Green New Deal, and her opposition to sex change surgeries for minors.

The 35-year-old was first elected to Congress in 2020.

Boebert has also regularly been the victim of sexist attacks from liberal media commentators and activists, including a recent anonymous campaign to circulate an unverified memo alleging she’d previously worked as a paid escort.

More recently, MSNBC commentator Kurt Bardella told the networks audience that, if Boebert lost, she should go get a job at OnlyFans, a platform that is popular with porn actresses who sell video and images of themselves to subscribers.
