Colorado #QAnon Cultist Defeats Trump-Endorsed GOP Incumbent In House Primary After Defying Lockdown

CNN reports:

A five-term Republican congressman endorsed by President Donald Trump conceded his primary reelection bid in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District on Tuesday evening, a stunning upset that will vault his far-right challenger, Lauren Boebert, into the state’s general election.

Boebert is the latest GOP candidate associated with the QAnon conspiracy theory, though she doesn’t go as far as self-professed QAnon supporters Georgia congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene and Oregon GOP Senate nominee Jo Rae Perkins.

A staunch Second Amendment advocate, Boebert owns a local restaurant, Shooters Grill, made famous for encouraging its staff to open carry. She recently defied public health orders to reopen the restaurant during the coronavirus pandemic.
