In the heart of Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, a rural region spanning much of the southwestern part of the state, some people who voted for Republican U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert two years ago said they were fed up with what seemed like her desire to grab the national spotlight over fighting for them.

The Donald Trump loyalist's surprisingly close race against little-known Democrat and former Aspen city councilman Adam Frisch has become one of the nation's most closely watched midterm election battles over a seat most political observers thought Boebert would win easily.

As of Friday morning, Frisch trailed Boebert by 1,122 votes in the U.S. House race. The nonpartisan Cook Political Report had rated the district as solidly Republican ahead of Tuesday’s election. Trump won the district twice, capturing 53.1% of the vote in 2016 and 52.9% four years later.

The results of the Boebert-Frisch showdown are likely to lead to a recount as control of the House hangs in the balance. Under state law, an automatic recount is required when a margin of victory in an election is less than or equal to 0.5% of the winner’s vote. Losing candidates may also request a recount at their own expense.

Apple Gibson, 69, of Pueblo County, who is registered as independent, said she usually votes Republican but not this time around.

“Her loud mouth; she’s a mini Trump. That was a turnoff,” Gibson said when asked why she switched her vote this time. Gibson said she believed Boebert wanted to create jobs at the expense of the Rocky Mountain region's natural beauty and landscape.

Interesting story in Washington State. Rep Jamie Herrera Buetler voted to impeach I-1. So he had her primaried. The GOP guy was pretty far right… vaccines are “experimental gene therapy”, Jan 6 was an “intelligence operation”, carp like that. The democrat won which is probably the first time a dem has represented that district in over 100 years, if ever.

There is hope.

I was so pleased with this! Just across the river.

Which is why I don’t like the game-playing with supporting the opposing side’s extremist candidate hoping they’ll go down, because sometimes you get an unintended consequence.

Kari Lake is in big trouble. Katie Hobbs is still leading, and Lake needs about 57% of the outstanding votes. Given there are still 40,000 Tucson ballots that should be strong for Homes, the numbers may not be there firLake.
