Rep. Boebert (R-CO) is locked in one of the tighter races in Congress, especially for an incumbent.
She is running against Aspen City Council member Adam Frisch.
Even though the lead is very narrow, Frisch has conceded.
This was a bit shocking because an automatic recount will likely be triggered.
With less than 200 votes remaining and a lead of more than 500 votes, Boebert took a victory lap.
She stated, "I'm told that there are less than 200 votes outstanding, which makes me so happy to announce we have won this race!
"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."
I am so thankful for all of your support and I am so proud to be your Representative! pic.twitter.com/4gnmflotiU

Frisch also commented, conceding the race and thanking staff on Twitter…
2/ 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. Stay tuned.

He later announced that he had called Boebert to concede.
During a presser he added, "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."
I have to give the man his props for not only conceding the race but also for taking a shot and saying something about the Democrat Party not many members are willing to admit these days.
