Lauren Boebert Wiki – Biography

Lauren Boebert, is a Bar owner and gun rights activist defeated five-time incumbent Rep. Scott Tipton in Colorado’s Third Congressional District, which encompasses the mostly rural western half of the state. Boebert ran to Tipton’s right, saying he wasn’t supportive enough of President Trump.

Boebert is the owner of Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colo., a restaurant where the waitstaff carry holstered handguns. She has been outspoken in her opposition to social distancing lockdowns put in place to try to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

“Our freedom and our Constitutional rights are on the ballot this November and Republicans just sent a loud and clear message that they want me there to fight for them,” Boebert said in a statement issued from her campaign.

In May, Boebert appeared on a right-wing online show and was asked what she thought of the “Q movement.”

“I am familiar with that,” Boebert replied, smiling. “Everything I’ve heard of Q — I hope that this is real. Because it only means America is getting stronger and better and people are returning to conservative values.”

QAnon is a convoluted conspiracy theory that, to some extent, means different things to different people. The gist is that Trump is working behind the scenes to expose and disrupt a vast conspiracy involving nefarious “deep state” bureaucrats and global elites who may engage in a pedophilia ring.

The narrative is fed by cryptic posts on internet message boards from an anonymous person or persons named Q, who followers believe to be a high-ranking intelligence official, or possibly even Trump himself. Popular YouTube and social media pages promulgate and analyze Q’s vague and largely inscrutable messages, turning the obsession into something of a game for many followers.

Last year, Yahoo News reported that an FBI document had identified QAnon adherents as “conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists” that presented potential terrorist threats.

“The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts,” the document states.

According to Open Secrets, Boebert won despite raising just $133,000 compared with $1.1 million for Tipton. She ends the primary raise with just $13,000 cash on hand, versus over $600,000 for Tipton.

Boebert may be the favorite in November’s general election because of the district’s conservative lean. She will face Democrat Diane Mitsch Bush, a former county commissioner and state representative who lost to Tipton in 2018. Bush lost by 8 percent, or roughly 27,000 votes.

Trump, who has repeatedly retweeted QAnon content, congratulated Boebert on Twitter after her win. Trump’s son Eric posted a QAnon graphic to his Instagram in June before later deleting it.

Although the president has never explicitly said he supports QAnon, he has embraced other conspiracy theories. Trump was a leading proponent of “birtherism,” the false claim that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya. And during the 2016 campaign, he repeatedly floated the baseless notion that the father of a GOP primary rival, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, was somehow involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

When asked about the presence of QAnon supporters at a Trump rally in 2018, then-White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders sidestepped the question.

“The president condemns and denounces any group that would incite violence against another individual, and certainly doesn’t support groups that would promote that type of behavior,” Sanders said at a White House briefing. “We’ve been clear about that a number of times since the beginning of the administration.”

The National Republican Congressional Committee expressed no concerns about Boebert’s QAnon sympathies when asked Tuesday night.

“We’ll get back to you when Cheri Bustos and the DCCC disavow dangerous conspiracy theorists like Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff who have pushed without evidence their wild-eyed claims that the President of the United States of America is actually a secret Russian double agent under control of the Kremlin,” NRCC spokesperson Bob Salera told HuffPost.

Boebert’s QAnon support pales in comparison to that of some other Republicans who have found success so far in 2020. Marjorie Taylor Greene earned the most votes in June’s primary in Georgia’s 14th District but will still face neurosurgeon John Cowan, a pro-Trump Republican, in an Aug. 11 primary runoff.

“Q is a patriot. … He is someone that very much loves his country, and he’s on the same page as us, and he is very pro-Trump,” Greene said in a 2017 video posted to YouTube, adding, “Now there’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do it.”

Boebert’s husband, Jayson, has worked his entire adult life in oil and gas fields, primarily in western Colorado, according to her campaign website.

Why did she win?

As you might suspect, that depends who you ask. The question can be framed another way: Why did Tipton, a five-term congressman, lose?

Tipton hardly campaigned in the primary, seemingly believing he would win easily, as he usually does. In emails to supporters and in social media posts, he never mentioned Boebert and rarely mentioned there was an election Tuesday.

Boebert, on the other hand, ran a spirited campaign, hitting Tipton on several issues and claiming she was the more adamant supporter of President Donald Trump, which endeared her to many Republicans in the district.

What political experience does she have?

Boebert has never held or even run for political office before, but she has shown a talent for attaching herself to salient issues and making headlines for her activism, which surely helped her Tuesday.

She reopened her restaurant in early May in defiance of Colorado Gov. Jared Polis’ coronavirus order closing them, prompting the suspension of her food license.

And last September, she showed up at a metro Denver campaign event for Beto O’Rourke, then a presidential candidate running on gun control. Boebert grabbed a microphone and told him, “Hell no, you won’t take our guns.”

She’s also active in anti-National Popular Vote Compact efforts — an issue that has been popular among western Colorado Republicans. Boebert says she collected signatures to get the matter on November ballots.
