You knew that the only thing stopping Congresswoman-elect Lauren Boebert (R-CO) from exploding across the conservative underworld nationally was actually getting elected.
U.S. Rep.-elect Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is relieved that members of Congress are allowed to carry firearms in Washington, despite the city’s gun ban, but she’s angry at the Capitol Police for not providing her with a way to store her gun while she’s on the floor of the House of Representatives, where guns are prohibited.
Former GOP Governor Draws Praise for Dismissing Election-Fraud Claims and Acknowledging Biden as Prez
Blazing a possible bipartisan path in Colorado toward recognizing Joe Biden as president, former Colorado Republican Gov. Bill Owens wrote on Facebook Sunday that there were “relatively few cases of voter fraud” in this month’s presidential election.
After joining a news conference yesterday with Rudolph Giuliani claiming without evidence that widespread fraud undermined November’s presidential election, Trump’s legal advisor Jenna Ellis jumped on a Denver conservative radio show and alleged, again with no evidence, that Colorado-based voting machine firm may have committed fraud to give victories to losing candidates in Colorado.
“If anybody out there thinks that this can’t happen to them and their friends, the Joe-and-Lilly story really woke people up to, ‘Yeah, it can,'” said Chris Holbert, Colorado’s Senate Republican leader, expressing his sadness today over the death from COVID-19 of former state Rep. Joe Nunez of Douglas County and his wife, Lilly.
Speaking on a conservative podcast last week, a former Republican congressional candidate said former Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler will be the next state GOP chair because “you can’t beat somebody with nobody.”
It sounds simplistic, but to be relevant in Colorado again Republicans have to vote a lot more like progressives. They can’t just wrap their old selves in a new “message” and hope voters don’t notice it’s the same Republicans talking cheaply. They need to vote in line with blue Colorado.
Congresswoman-elect Lauren Boebert, a Republican, says she’s “happy” to go to Washington D.C. to represent not only the people in her district but to “give voice to Colorado.”
If you’re fair-minded and you look at Tuesday’s election in Colorado, you admit that it could have been worse for Republicans, but overall the Colorado Republican Party has grabbed Donald Trump and swung with him so far to the right that the GOP has become next to irrelevant here.
