|U.S. Representative from Colorado's 3rd Congressional District|
From: January 3, 2021 – present
|Successor||Incumbent (no successor)|
Lauren Opal Boebert, born December 15, 1986 (age 36), 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. Then, in 2022, she won reelection in a close race that her Dem opponent did not concede until ten days after the 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.
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.'"
Sherronna Bishop was a campaign manager for Lauren Boebert. In November 2021 the FBI broke down her door with a battering ram and terrorized her children. The FBI grabbed her phone from her and refused to allow her to speak to her attorney. She was restrained. The FBI ransacked the home and refused to let her see the alleged warrant they had for hours.
13 brave and heroic members of our military died during Biden's botched Afghanistan withdrawal. They deserved to be recognized during the State of the Union speech so I made sure to speak up.
