Lauren Boebert results - live: Colorado race down to wire with Democrat Adam Frisch leading Republican by 64 votes

Lauren Boebert vs Adam Frisch – latest: Colorado election results may be called today

Frisch challenges Boebert in tight Colorado race

Incoming ballots could determine the outcome of an unexpectedly tight race between Lauren Boebert and Adam Frisch for Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District.

The deadline for voters to fix ballot discrepancies and for county clerks to receive military and overseas votes passed on Wednesday, with all ballots required to be counted by Friday.

Ms Boebert’s lead began to shrink as more ballots were processed on Thursday, according to the secretary of state’s office.

The race could head to an automatic recount if either candidate fails to win by a margin of more than 0.5 per cent. A recount must be completed by 13 December.

While the race is among only a handful not yet decided, Republicans have won a slim majority in the US House of Representatives with 218 seats, giving the GOP control of the lower chamber of Congress.

Boebert race for Congress in Colorado heads to likely recount

The race between far-right Republican Lauren Boebert and Democratic challenger Adam Frisch for Colorado’s 3rd congressional district is headed to a likely recount, according to election observers. Given the present vote totals, neither candidate seems likely to possess the required 0.5 per cent margin of victory to win in the first round of counting.

However, as Cook Political Report editor Dave Wasserman notes, it’s “extremely rare for a lead of that size to be overturned in a recount,” pointing to Ms Boebert’s present lead of just over 550 votes.

‘Good riddance!’: Boebert celebrates Pelosi’s retirement from leadership

Boebert’s lead narrows as more votes are counted in extremely tight race

Lauren Boebert is leading by just 839 votes in a race to hang on to her congressional seat.

Her Democratic opponent Adam Frisch has netted 161,945 votes to Ms Boebert’s 162,784, according to updates from the secretary of state’s office at 4.30pm ET on Thursday.

An automatic recount is triggered if the votes between the two candidates equals less than 0.5 percent of the votes cast for the leading candidate.

A recount threshold at this point would be 814 votes.

‘Other people were shocked by Lauren Boebert’s close race. I wasn’t’

The Independent’s Sheila Flynn writes:



Colorado is home to a diverse population — ranchers and hippies, skiers and stoners, immigrants and coastal transplants. Lauren Boebert’s Third Congressional District includes all of them. And the majority of those voters, despite their differences, tend to share an independent streak and a fierce pride in their state.

Boebert either forgot about that or seriously miscalculated. Because it became apparent to me this year, just from reporting in her constituency, that those factors would cause her huge problems.

Lauren Boebert backs House Republican investigations into Biden family

House Republicans wasted no time pursuing politically motivated investigations into President Joe Biden, holding a press conference on Thursday morning hours after winning a projected majority to announce the House Judiciary Commitee under GOP control will probe the president and his family.

The president has denied any connection to his son’s affairs, while federal law enforcement has investigated Hunter Biden since 2018. House Republicans are pushing ahead as they attempt to grind the Democratic administration to a halt.

“This is two years overdue and this is one of many reasons why it was so critical to take back the House!” Ms Boebert said on Twitter. “Looking forward to Biden and his family being held accountable.”

Colorado will be the second state in US history with a majority-women state legislature

Colorado is set to become the second state in US history with a state legislature that is majority women.

Nevada, the first state to reach that milestone, will retain its majority-women legislature following midterm elections.

After bracing for losing seats amid a projected “red wave” in midterm elections, Democrats in Colorado’s House and Senate have instead expanded their majorities.

Democrats flipped five GOP-held seats in the House, where Democrats will expand to a 46-19 supermajority – enough to override vetoes without Republican support.

Democrats also flipped three Senate districts, resulting in a 23-12 majority – just one short of a supermajority.
