The AP tells us that Lauren Boebert’s re-election is going to be in a recount, and we hope she gets Rep. 3-Names to count her votes on her fingers and toes.
DENVER (AP) — Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert, a renowned conservative firebrand whose combative style helped define the new right, is likely headed to an automatic recount in her bid to fend off a surprisingly difficult challenge by a Democratic businessman from the ritzy ski town of Aspen.
The Associated Press has declared the election in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District too close to call. AP will await the results of a potential recount to call the race. With nearly all votes counted, the incumbent Boebert leads Democrat Adam Frisch by 0.16 percentage points, or 551 votes out of nearly 327,000 votes counted.
The race in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District — a wide swath of the state’s west — was a showdown between Boebert, a gun-toting Republican from the working-class town of Rifle on the banks of the Colorado River, and Frisch, a conservative Democrat from the ritzy ski town of Aspen.
No mention of her beloved Possum Hallar pistol-packing, salmonella-serving businesses, and what the locals think. I guess this is one time that the elite press isn’t going to diners where the Real Americans gather. Weird, innit?
