ICYMI: Frisch Triples Boebert’s Fundraising in Last FEC Filing; MSNBC’s Joy Reid Interviews Frisch in Segment on Boebert’s Extremism
Frisch Campaign Makes National Headlines, Outpaces Boebert in Fundraising as Race for CO-3 Gets Closer
Woody Creek, CO – The Adam Frisch campaign to oust Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District is gaining momentum in the final days before Election Day, nearly tripling Boebert’s fundraising numbers in the last FEC filing.
Frisch raised $890,000 in the Pre-General filing, which spans Oct. 1 – Oct. 19, while Boebert raised only $298,000. Nearly 14,000 donors gave to Frisch in this time period, including over 9,000 first-time donors.
In a segment on MSNBC’s The ReidOut with Joy Reid, Frisch highlighted Boebert’s extremism on issues like abortion as Reid noted the campaign’s movement in the polls:
Frisch also made national headlines this week in Bloomberg and the Associated Press as the race for CO-3 heats up.
“Boebert, a conservative firebrand with a devoted following, should be a shoo-in. But in the weeks leading up to the midterm elections where historic trends favor her party gaining seats, she has gone on the offensive against an aggressive Democratic opponent as some polling and fundraising numbers show a tightening race.”
… “Speaking to supporters at the [Meeker] library, Frisch bemoaned the Democratic Party’s desertion of rural America in favor concentration on the coasts and in liberal cities like Denver and Aspen. That comment rang true with Kathleen Sullivan Kelley, a former cattle rancher and legislator in Denver who unseated a Republican incumbent in 1980 despite President Ronald Reagan’s coattails. “I didn’t desert the Democratic Party, it left me,” she told him.”
“Asked after the event if Frisch could pull off a similar victory, Kelley replied: ‘I’m not going to say he can’t.’”
Associated Press: Frisch targets GOP voters tired of Boebert's 'angertainment'
“What I’m hearing from long-term, mainstream Republicans: They are not happy with the new face of the party,” said Republican state Sen. Don Coram, who lost the June party primary to Boebert and has endorsed Frisch. “We would rather sacrifice a Republican than sacrifice the Republic.”
The campaign also picked up additional endorsements this week from the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) and the Pueblo Letter Carriers Union.
