Lauren Boebert promised Tuesday in Craig to, “bring Colorado to D.C. and get D.C. the heck out of Moffat County.”
Over 100 Craig residents and visiting constituents gathered Tuesday at Alice Pleasant park to see Congresswoman Boebert campaign in Moffat County.
Hosted by Moffat County Republicans, the event was attended by constituents of all ages, and some supporters of Boebert traveled from as far as Portland, Oregon, to see her speak. Moffat County Republicans chairman Doug Winters, who introduced the congresswoman, said that he hopes the region remains positive, despite what Boebert called, “many attacks against (Moffat County).”
“I think as long as we remain positive, and we stand in the good fight, and continue fighting for our rights and our values, good things are going to happen,” Winters said. “You know, I truly believe that next year, you’re going to see that wave not only go across the nation, but I also believe in the state of Colorado. I’m gonna be optimistic about that.”
At her hour-long event, Boebert touched on a large number of issues — from the U.S.’s southern border to Just Transition to I-70 closures in Glenwood Springs to the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill passed by the U.S. Senate. Boebert, a Rifle native, cited Gov. Polis’s exclusion of Moffat County in a recent declaration of emergency as a result of the mudslides as an example of District 3 facing exclusions from larger districts and cities in Colorado.
