    Boebert Overcomes Major Deficit, Now Leads by Narrow Margin

    Published on

    The contest in Colorado among Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert and Democrat Adam Frisch was very close given the number of uncalled and extremely close midterm elections.

    When unofficial results were updated Thursday afternoon, Boebert, who had been trailing her opponent, had made up ground.

    According to the figures published on the website of the Colorado secretary of state, the Republican received around 50.1 percent of the vote compared to her opponent’s 49.9 percent.

    In the contest for the state’s 3rd Congressional District, the congresswoman received 159,029 votes while Frisch received 158,235, a difference of 794 votes.

    The website did not state how many votes were counted, but The New York Times stated that it was 95%.

    Due to Boebert’s razor-thin advantage, a recount might be necessary.

    In Colorado, if a candidate wins by a margin of just 0.5 percent or less, the ballots must be recounted. According to The Wall Street Journal, that equates to around 800 votes.

    The Republican had retaken the lead by early afternoon, according to The Hill, after Frisch briefly appeared to have a lead of roughly 64 votes on Thursday morning.

    The Times predicted on Thursday that Boebert will prevail in the contest and win a second term in Congress even though a recount is likely.

    Since Boebert is a Republican who vehemently favors gun rights and is associated with former President Donald Trump, many Democrats are violently opposed to her.

    However, those same traits have helped the conservative firebrand become a beloved figure among many on the right.

    Boebert applauded the update that handed her the lead on Thursday.

    On Twitter, she said, “Winning!”
