A recount in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional district confirmed GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert won her race against Democrat Adam Frisch.
Democrat Adam Frisch conceded to Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert last month.
Frisch said he called Boebert and conceded.
The Democrat told reporters that his campaign is not asking for a recount.
“We are not asking for this recount. It is one that the citizens of Colorado mandate through our election system,” he said, telling supporters not to donate to his campaign for the recount effort.
However, a recount was still mandated and Lauren Boebert ended up winning by a slim margin.
The Denver Post reported:
Now weeks after the November midterm elections and Colorado’s Secretary of State announced that U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert did indeed win her race against Adam Frisch, if only by a few hundred votes.
Election officials across the state’s massive 3rd Congressional District tallied votes for days after the Nov. 8 election. Frisch, a Democrat and former Aspen City Council member, took the lead early on but gradually lost ground to Boebert. In the end, initial vote tallies showed Boebert, of Silt, just 554 votes ahead of Frisch.
In the end the recount only changed four votes. Boebert lost three and Frisch gained one. The congresswoman won with 50.06% of the votes to Frisch’s 49.89%.
The Secretary of State’s Office will reimburse county election offices for the cost of the recount.
“Thank you for entrusting me to help lead the way. I’ll be working every day to prove I can get the job done right,” Boebert said.
All of the counties completed their recounts, and confirmed we’ve won this race.
Republicans have been entrusted with the majority and we must now prove we can take the temperature down in DC by leading not only with strength but grace. pic.twitter.com/EH80Egq9UH
