|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 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.
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.'"
