Colorado GOP Primary Stuns! Career Politician Loses To Gun-Toting Socialist Fighter

Georgette July 2, 2020 Colorado, GOP, Lauren Boebert, Politics Comments Off on Colorado GOP Primary Stuns! Career Politician Loses To Gun-Toting Socialist Fighter

Rep, Scott Tipton has been in Congress, representing his Colorado district for ten years… and he was part of the group who sat back and did nothing during the first two years of President Trump’s first term, despite his ‘supportive’ voting record.

However, now, he will not be heading back to his cushy job keeping the status quo. He was defeated by a radical newcomer in the primary race. In fact, Lauren Boebert confronted Beto O’Rourke about his desire to destroy the Second Amendment.

Fox News reported:

President Trump congratulated Lauren Boebert late Tuesday night after the pro-gun businesswoman defeated Rep. Scott Tipton, who represented his Colorado district for five terms in Congress.

“Congratulations on a really great win!” Trump tweeted. Trump’s tweet linked to a post from her Twitter account from back in May where she described herself as a tough fighter against socialism and advocate for the Second Amendment.

 

“I refuse to send my children into a socialist nation,” the mother of 4 said. “Their freedom IS my motivator! Threaten the liberty of Americans, and I’ll be there to hold you accountable! #USHouse #CO03 #HELLNObeto @BetoORourke.”

Boebert, the owner of Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colo., confronted Beto O’Rourke when he was a Democratic presidential candidate. He stopped in the Denver suburb of Aurora, and she questioned him on suggestions that he made regarding confiscating guns.

She told Fox News in an interview at the time that she drove for three hours to see O’Rourke with her “Glock on her hip” and told him, “‘Hell no, you’re not going to take our guns.’”

The Associated Press reported that Boebert accused Tipton of not being sufficiently pro-Trump even though the president had endorsed her opponent.

Trump took to Twitter on Monday to call Tipton a “great supporter of the #MAGA Agenda! He fights for your #2A rights and the Border Wall. Scott is working hard for Colorado and has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

She will run in November’s general election against Diane Mitsch Bush, who won the Democratic nomination on Tuesday by defeating James Iacino.

Tipton conceded in an email sent by his longtime campaign consultant Michael Fortney.

“(Third) District Republicans have decided who they want to run against the Democrats this November,” Tipton wrote. “I want to congratulate Lauren Boebert and wish her and her supporters well.”
