One midterm race that has yet to be called is in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, between incumbent Rep. Lauren Boebert (R) and her Democratic challenger, Adam Frisch.
New results were released Thursday afternoon, with Boebert now leading Frisch by just 556 votes, with a few ballots still to be counted. The Associated Press reports. This is a margin of about 0.34 percent, and under Colorado state law, a 0.5 percent count is automatically triggered. Both campaigns have spent the past few days “curating” ballots, which means they are trying to fix problems with ballots that were rejected due to mismatched signatures.
Boebert, a vocal supporter of Trump and gun rights, was favored to win re-election as redistricting made the area she represents more conservative. access point reports. Frisch is a businessman and former member of the Aspen City Council, who sought support from disillusioned Democrats, moderates and Republicans.
frisch said access point the fact that the race is so close shows that voters are ready for change. He wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up winning the election, Frisch added, but “obviously we can’t be surprised if we lose. We’re not that crazy.”
