Reelection Bid of Far-Right Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert Headed for Recount

HeadlineNov 18, 2022

In Colorado, the race between far-right Republican Congressmember Lauren Boebert and Democratic challenger Adam Frisch appears headed for a recount after an initial tally showed Boebert’s lead at just over 500 votes out of 327,000 counted. Boebert is a far-right Trump supporter, an election denier, and infamously vowed to carry her Glock pistol on the Capitol grounds. Last year Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy refused to sanction Boebert after she used racist language to attack her Muslim colleagues.
