Republican Nominee for U.S. Congress, Colorado's 3rd District

“There is a battle for the heart and soul of our country that I intend on helping win,” said Lauren Boebert, candidate for Colorado’s 3rd congressional district. “I’m running for Congress to stand up for our conservative values, address our current representatives’ failed promises, and put far-left Democrats back in their place.”

Lauren is the founder, owner, and operator of Shooters Grill, a restaurant that earned national notoriety for staff that proudly open carry as they serve their customers. She gained additional recognition in September 2019 by attending presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s rally to tell him directly: “Hell, no, you won’t take our guns.”

When Colorado’s liberal state government voted for the state to join the National Popular Vote Compact and hand Colorado’s votes for President of the United States to California, Lauren became the second-largest signature gatherer (over 229,000 signatures were gathered statewide), ensuring that voters would have the opportunity to repeal the measure this fall. If repealed, it will be the first time since the 1930s that a law was repealed via citizen petition.

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Squad and the rest of these left-wing lunatics are taking a wrecking ball to our country while our current representative stays utterly silent,” Lauren said. “Hard-working, patriotic Americans don’t want the Green New Deal and socialized medicine,” she continued. “Every time AOC and the rest of the Squad pipe up with another crazy idea, I will remind them that our belief in God, Country and Family are what built the United States of America into the greatest nation the world has ever known.”

Lauren’s husband, Jayson, has worked his entire adult life in oil and gas fields, primarily in Western Colorado. They are the proud parents of four boys.

Lauren has been named a Young Gun by the National Republican Congressional Committee and is a member of Mesa County Republican Women. To learn more about her campaign, visit her website or Facebook page.
