Lauren Boebert And Adam Frisch Colorado Race May Not Be Decided Until Next Week

The results of Colorado's Congressional District 3 Race won't be known until next Thursday at the earliest.

The results of Colorado’s Congressional District 3 Race won’t be known until next Thursday at the earliest.

At the last update, Boebert’s lead stood at 162,040 to Frisch’s 160,918 with 99% reporting.

Pueblo County Clerk Gilbert Ortiz says election workers are done processing ballots that came in on election day but there are still hundreds of military and overseas ballots left to come in. As long as they were postmarked by Nov. 8, and are in by next Thursday, they will be counted.

Also, provisional ballots, which are used by people whose eligibility is in question, and ballots where signatures don’t match voter records.

Those can be “cured” or fixed through next Thursday too. Ortiz says he also held back about 100 ballots to mix in with the military and overseas ballots to ensure the votes are anonymous.

“The more I know about Pueblo, the less I know about how it will vote,” said Ortiz.

On Saturday Frish tweeted, “Looks like we are likely heading to a recount as the margin of this race is so close. We are still waiting on thousands of ballots to come in from overseas and the military as well as those that need signature and technical verification.”

A recount in the race could take several weeks to complete. Under Colorado law, the recount must be completed 35 days after the general election, which would be Dec. 13 this year. 

On Friday, Boebert tweeted, “I told you all year, the Left would do everything that they possibly could to get rid of me. As this race comes down to every last vote, I need you to help us ensure we have the resources to finish what we started!”

“I knew this race would be close, but I didn’t know it would be one of the closest in the country! We’re still waiting on ballots to cure and overseas and military ballots to be counted. Thank you all for the support during this process,” Frisch tweeted on Friday.

“The red wave has begun,” Boebert tweeted as polls began closing Tuesday evening.

At a campaign party Tuesday night in Grand Junction, Boebert got onto a stage and offered an extended prayer to her supporters. She ended by declaring: “We will have this victory.”

Frisch says that Boebert sacrificed her constituents’ interests for frequent “angertainment” in accusing President Joe Biden and Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of seeking to destroy the soul of the nation.

He vowed to join the bipartisan “Problem Solvers Caucus” in Congress, a sharp turn from Boebert’s repudiation of across-the-aisle census building.

Frisch said in an interview early Wednesday that the close contest wasn’t a surprise.

“I spent 10 months trying to convince donors and journalists and political strategists everywhere that there was a path forward,” Frisch said. “I have this calm belief that that 40% of the Republican party wants their party back.”
