The Gazette newspaper of Colorado Springs has endorsed Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., in the June 28 Republican primary.
"Most of Colorado's congressional delegation subsists in a state of obscurity," the paper's editorial board wrote Sunday, announcing the endorsement. "Then there's 3rd Congressional District Rep. Lauren Boebert, who breaks the mold.
"Though her mildly bombastic style keeps conventional Republicans on edge, this Western Slope business entrepreneur stands as Colorado's first nationally relevant politician since the era of Sens. Bill Armstrong and Gary Hart, and Gov. Dick Lamm in the '70s, '80s and '90s.
"Her clear and concise messaging commands attention, even when the media contextualizes comments to cast her as another version of Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene or Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez."
It noted, in the past two years, Boebert has been the prime sponsor of 32 bills "that will gain traction if Republicans win control of the House in November."
"Boebert fights for energy, families, children's health, better transportation, and all that is good for Colorado. District 3 primary voters should nominate Boebert for a second term," the newspaper wrote.
