HUGE WIN! A Week Later, Rep. Lauren Boebert Wins In Colorado’s 3rd District As Democrat Opponent Concedes Ahead Of A Likely Recount!

After more than a week of Election Day, the much-heated race for Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District was still ongoing and was likely headed to an automatic recount, until the Democrat frontrunner conceded to his opponent, the incumbent Republican Congresswoman, Rep. Lauren Boebert.

As of Friday, a full week after the election, nearly all votes from the district were counted and Rep. Boebert held a narrow 551 vote lead over her Democrat opponent, former Aspen City Council member Adam Frisch.

With a difference of 0.16 percentage points, the race was too close to call and would be likely headed to an automated recount, as Colorado state law requires a mandatory recount if the margin of victory in an election is within half a percentage point.

The recount for the race would have added several weeks to complete after the main election took almost a full week. All that was prevented as Frisch concluded and Rep. Boebert declared victory and announced that she will remain the incumbent on her social media.

“I’m told that there are less than 200 votes outstanding, which makes me so happy to announce we have won this race!” Rep. Boebert said. “With this victory and with Republicans in control of the House of Representatives, we can focus on the issues that actually matter most, including getting inflation under control, increasing our domestic energy supply, securing the southern border, and being a strong check on the White House.” She added.

Acknowledging the likely recount, Boebert told her followers that her campaign and her lawyers “will definitely make sure everything is conducted properly,”

While Frisch told his followers on social media to “stay tuned” in his message to the ballot volunteers.

“The volunteers who have spent hours — including sleepless nights — getting ballots cured & counted in #CO03 deserve the nation’s thanks as they complete one of the most democratic processes in the world and ensure the integrity of our elections,” he tweeted.

“The outpouring of support from around the country and even the world since Election Day has been overwhelming & humbling. Running in this race, getting to know so many people in my district & hearing your stories has been an honor of a lifetime.” He added.

But somehow, on Friday, he announced in a press conference that he had called Rep. Boebert to concede the race and his campaign won’t ask for a recount. He called Colorado elections “safe, accurate, and secure”

“The Democratic Party has slowly but surely eroded the trust of rural and working class Americans. Denver and D.C. politicians need to demonstrate an understanding of the issues that face rural America, working class America, and celebrate, not disrespect, folks across the country,” Frisch said.

With Rep. Boebert’s win, Republicans would hold a majority in the house and will help roadblock some of the Biden administration’s far-left radical policies destroying America.
