Far-right Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-Colo.) reelection in the 2022 midterms remained in doubt into Wednesday.
The Donald Trump acolyte had been predicted to easily secure a second term in Congress against Democratic challenger Adam Frisch, although polling had tightened in recent weeks.
But with 88% of the votes counted, Boebert had 49.1%, trailing former Aspen City Council member Frisch, who had 50.9%. Polling was still leaning toward a Boebert victory because the uncounted votes were from traditionally GOP-aligned areas.
Boebert appeared confident earlier in the evening, tweeting “The red wave has begun!” She went quiet after that.
She is down 3500 votes and almost all of the remaining votes are from counties favoring Frisch.
I hope she never quit her night job. When the Sun goes down, so does Lauren. Say Andy, Are you back to being a road warrior???
