Article from The Daily Wire by Ryan Saavedra.

Lauren Boebert, who burst on to the national stage earlier this year when she confronted Democratic presidential candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke in Colorado over his extremist anti-gun proposals, announced today that she is running for U.S. Congress as Republican in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District.

Boebert, 33, is the owner of Shooter’s Grill in Rifle, Colorado, which has drawn considerable attention as the staff in the restaurant all open carry firearms.

Boebert confronted O’Rourke in September when the now-failed Democratic presidential candidate was increasing political polarization across the country with his declaration that he would confiscate all semi-automatic firearms from law abiding citizens.

Boebert says that she is excited to take on far-left Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ilhan Omar (MN), and Rashida Tlaib (MI), and hopes to be able to campaign for their Republican opponents in an effort to remove them from office because she believes their ideology is among the greatest threats to the United States.
