RESTORING

COLORADO'S 3RD

CONGRESSIONAL

Lauren Boebert will be a one-term Congresswoman.

 

In 2020, Lauren Boebert registered the poorest performance of a 3rd Congressional GOP candidate in a generation. Lauren lost Pueblo for the first time for the GOP in eight years, delivered the worst result in Mesa County in 12 years, and lost her home county of Garfield for the GOP for the first time in living memory. 

 

In fact, some her worst underperforming precincts were in her hometown of Rifle, CO. It's almost like they knew something other voters didn't.

 

Now, Lauren's dubious past of grifting, lawbreaking, and self-serving con artistry is on full display in the halls of Congress, bringing daily shame to the good people of Colorado's Third Congressional.

First In, Last Out

Before others were raising alarm bells or loading your inbox with their fundraising emails, Rural Colorado United was on the case.

In the Summer of 2020, some of CD3's longest-serving community and campaign leaders got together to counter this rising threat under the spokesmanship of Pueblo Vietnam Veteran George Autobee.

 

Our deep research unearthed scandal after scandal from Lauren's sordid past - ones that regional and national media are still catching up on now.

Our Fall video campaign [1, 2] called out her violent anti-American extremism months before the Capitol insurrection, for which she is now under investigation.

Our highly efficient communications and patiently-built network of nearly 500 small donors and 2,000 volunteers delivered the stunning results of 2020 in Pueblo, Mesa, and Garfield counties. 

Now, we've launched 2020 with over 800 volunteer action-takers who are currently poised to win an investigation at the House Ethics Committee.

Rural Colorado United won't rest

until Lauren's last day in office in 2023 - or before.

WE ASKED SOME OF CD3'S BEST-KNOWN BUSINESS LEADERS, VETERANS, AND EDUCATORS WHAT THEY THOUGHT ABOUT LAUREN'S RECORD.

THEY'VE GOT SOMETHING

THEY'D LIKE TO ASK YOU.

RURAL COLORADO UNITED BREAKS THE STORY ON LAUREN'S FABRICATIONS

In a September and October press releases, Rural Colorado United laid bare a series of fabrications in Lauren Boebert's origin story, as she's told it in numerous interviews and during the GOP primary:

  • No one was murdered behind her Rifle, CO restaurant, prompting staff to arm themselves. Instead, a man died of a drug overdose in the night.

  • Lauren's mother was not, in fact, a registered Democrat dependent on some mythic dole when she was growing up. Her mother registered as a Republican in 2001 and changed to an unaffiliated in 2013. Only in 2020 - when Lauren ran for office - did her mother change her registration back to Republican. In 2006, Lauren herself registered as a Democrat.

  • Lauren told voters that she'd earned a GED after dropping out of High School. It was revealed that she actually earned that GED in the spring of this year when she was running for office

The depth of Lauren's lawbreaking also came to light, with past citations and infractions including: 

  • Lauren is six months behind on a campaign finance filing of how she spends supporters' money and two months behind the extended deadline of her personal finances filing, which would otherwise clarify how she maintains her Rifle restaurant despite running a $242,347 loss last reported in 2018

  • Reckless driving citations in three counties, including tailgating, speeding, and multiple failures to use child safety restraints

  • Inciting underage drinkers at Country Jam to flee law enforcement custody, where Lauren threatened deputies with her connections at Fox News 

  • Eight tax liens against her Rifle, CO restaurant totaling $19,000 dollars owed to the people of Colorado - liens about which Boebert lied

  • A home foreclosure eviction and a civil debt case filed by Capital One Bank

  • Allowing pit bulls to remain at large without licensing

  • Failure to appear in court

  • Citations at her Rifle, CO restaurant including potentially hazardous food storage, poor hand-washing practice, and failure to observe county or state licenses  - in addition to poisoning up to 80 people with unsafe pork products at a Rifle rodeo through her other food business

RIFLE REPUBLICAN AND

FORMER STATE HOUSE SPEAKER

RUSS GEORGE DECLINES TO BACK LAUREN,

ENDORSES OPPONENT INSTEAD

Fourth-generation Rifle native Republican Russ George served four terms as the State House Representative of District 57, rising to serve as Speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives. 

George was later appointed by Republican and Democratic governors to run the Colorado Division of Wildlife, the Colorado Department of Transportation and Colorado Department of Natural Resources before serving as president of Colorado Northwestern Community College, with campuses in Rangely and Craig. George has also been a member of the Colorado Water Conservation Board and the state Interbasin Compact Committee.

 

In an Op Ed to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, George said:

“We need pragmatic, steady leaders who will meet the multiple crises we all face in this moment— and Diane Mitsch Bush is that leader.”

"I have had several opportunities to work alongside Diane on tough issues of critical importance to rural and western Colorado, especially on hard choices on water and transportation. Diane always looks for the balance between legitimate competing interests and demands as she searches for the way to foster efficient government to do the most good for the greatest number of citizens."

“Her proven bipartisan track record and reputation as an independent leader who was willing to stand up to Democratic leadership in the State House shows me that she will work with anyone to do what’s right for Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District. Diane has my full endorsement, and I can’t wait to call her my congresswoman.”
