Lauren Boebert’s Democrat Challenger Concedes Race before Recount: ‘Time to Get to Work!’

Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-CO) Democrat challenger Adam Frisch has called the Republican congresswoman to concede the race ahead of a recount of their tight election.

CNN Newsroom anchor Ana Cabrera reported that Frisch confirmed he had just called Boebert to concede the race for Colorado’s third congressional district.

“There will still be an automatic recount done by the Secretary of State because this one is extremely close, but, Lauren Boebert’s challenger has now conceded,” said Cabrera.

Boebert said: “Adam Frisch called me to concede this race.

“I look forward to getting past election season and focusing on conservative governance in the House majority.

“Time to get to work!”

Frisch said he was “tremendously thankful…there’s never been a more humbling moment in my life” to have so much support.

However, he also took a swipe at Boebert, saying the voters in the district were “tired of the circus and tired of the lack of a serious representative, of having representation that is more interested in self-promotion through the anger-tainment industry.”

He then claimed that “the voters have spoken,” even though he was “down by a few hundred votes.”

According to Mediaite:

In Colorado, any race decided by a margin that’s 0.5% or less of the votes earned by the top finisher is automatically recounted.

The current margin of 551 votes is about 0.34% of Boebert’s 163,758 votes.

According to information published by the Colorado Secretary of State’s office, all but one of the counties in the Western Slope district have finished reporting votes.
