Lauren Opal Boebert, born December 15, 1986 (age 34), the mother of four and owner of the Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, won the hard-fought 3rd district congressional race against Democrat and former state lawmaker Diane Mitsch Bush in a Colorado House district that is as large as Pennsylvania in the 2020 election.

"I am proud to announce that I am the first mom to represent Colorado’s Third Congressional District," stated Boebert from her restaurant on election night.[1]

Before getting elected to Congress, Boebert was a gun rights advocate. She challenged Beto O'Rourke at an Aurora town hall meeting during his 2020 presidential campaign, saying, "I was one of the gun-owning Americans who heard you speak regarding your 'Hell yes I'm going to take your AR-15s and AK-47s. Well, I'm here to say hell no you're not.'"[2]

She defied a lockdown in Colorado on Thanksgiving Day by declaring her large family get-together to be a funeral for a turkey, and thus within the exemption for funeral services.[3]

On Christmas Eve 2020 she announced that she would object to the certification of Biden's Electors on Jan. 6th.
