Money Pouring into Campaign of Boebert Opponent to Oust Her from Congress

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has a problem, two of them actually, that could prevent her from being able to defend her seat.

It is a shame, really, as she came into Congress as a firebrand who seemed to have a bright future.

Unfortunately, she has fallen for many of the pitfalls of office as well as chasing likes, follows, and shares on social media. And now she is facing not only a strong general election opponent with a ton of money, but she may not even make it out of the primary.

Want Her Gone

Boebert should have read the room better when she won her last election by a whopping 546 votes. But instead of it being a wake-up call, she stayed on the same path.

Now, Boebert has a salacious scandal, a divorce, a teenage son who is going to be a dad, and possible campaign finance violations, and that does not even include her feud with Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

In an effort to save her seat, Boebert has gone on an apology tour, but her act is wearing thin to the point that attorney Jeff Hurd just announced he will be running in the primary race against Boebert.

Barely in the race, Hurd has already raised more than $400,000, about half of what Boebert has raised in the full quarter. Not only that, but Hurd has also been backed by several political heavyweights in Colorado, including former Governor Bill Owens.

If she does make it out of the primary, she will be facing off against Adam Frisch, who barely lost to Boebert in the last election.

Frisch has money pouring into his campaign from people who want to see Boebert removed. So far this cycle, he has raised $7.7 million, more than three times what Boebert has raised, and he has outraised her nearly four to one in this quarter.

With only a razor-thin majority in the House, I am just not sure the GOP can afford to have Boebert face off against Frisch again, as it is all but certain he will defeat her this time around.

The best possible scenario could be for Hurd to beat her in the primary, then roll the dice and hope he can raise enough to compete with Frisch in the general election. Either way, Boebert only has herself to blame for her problems in this election.
