Boebert Confirms She Won’t Accept Election Results if She Loses

Boebert Tells Press She’ll Accept a Second Term in Congress, but Mum on Respecting the Will of Voters if She Loses

Woody Creek, CO – After the Adam Frisch campaign for Colorado’s 3rd congressional district called on incumbent Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) yesterday to commit to accepting the results of the Nov. 8 election regardless of the outcome, Boebert again refused to say she’ll concede if she loses.

Asked by the Colorado Times Recorder’s David O. Williams if she’ll accept the results regardless of the outcome, a campaign spokesperson emailed: “Congresswoman Boebert will be honored to accept a second term in Congress when voters re-elect her on November 8th.”

“The campaign did not reply to a follow-up email asking for a clear answer on whether Boebert will accept the results of the election if voters do not re-elect her on Nov. 8,” Williams wrote in the story published today.

Yesterday, Nov. 2, Frisch called on Boebert to commit to accepting the election results regardless of the outcome.

“I call on Boebert to commit to accepting the results of the November election regardless of the outcome,” Frisch said in yesterday’s press release. “I am fully committed to affirming the results of the Nov. 8 election as the will of CO-3 voters. It is essential to our Democracy that candidates on both sides of the political spectrum reaffirm trust in our elections. Our elections are secure and every Coloradan can rest assured that their vote will be counted.”

“It’s highly concerning that Rep. Boebert is refusing to say that she would accept the election results and respect the will of CO-3 voters if they decide to send me to Congress,” Frisch said.

In September, Boebert refused to tell the Denver Post whether she would accept the results of the November election if she loses.

“Boebert’s representatives would not say whether the congresswoman would accept the results of the upcoming election even if she loses,” the Denver Post’s Conrad Swanson wrote. “Instead, they assert that the congresswoman will be reelected ‘and her first act will be to fire Nancy Pelosi.’”

Boebert’s refusal to say she’ll concede comes as Frisch continues to outpace Boebert in fundraising and closes in on Boebert in the polls, with the most recent Keating Research poll showing Frisch in a statistical tie with Boebert. Since the release of the Keating poll, Frisch has picked up support from key Republican leaders in the district including state Sen. Don Coram of Montrose, who ran against Boebert in the 2022 Republican primary election, and former Republican Colorado House Speaker Russ George.
