(Republicaninformer.com)- Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado), who ran for reelection in a race that was too close to call a week after Election Day, held on for the win.
To win a majority in the House of Representatives in the following Congress, the Republicans needed just one more seat. Newsmax predicted that the Republicans would win 217 seats, the Democrats would win 203 seats, and there would be 15 races with no clear winner.
According to a tweet sent out by Boebert late on Monday night, “Waiting this long for election results is going to make dismissing Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House that much more sweeter.”
When the votes were counted, many rejected ballots needed to be “cured.” This is a procedure by which voters can rectify ballots that were previously rejected due to flaws (e.g., missing signatures).
Voters had until Wednesday to correct any mistakes they may have made on their ballot.
Frisch wrote in a tweet while still fighting, “We’re just going to have to wait. As the ballots continue to be counted, we continue to feel pride in our position and the things we have achieved.”
The Washington Examiner said that county clerks were also waiting to handle a limited number of ballots until they could be counted with the rest of the ballots that have been cured, including ballots from military members and residents of other countries.
Aspen is an affluent and generally liberal ski town, and Frisch, a local businessman and former city councilman, hails from there.
Boebert, a fervent supporter of former President Donald Trump, established herself as a partisan flashpoint in Washington, D.C., during her first term in office. She had been favored to win reelection after redistricting made the conservative and mostly rural district more Republican.
Boebert won with 50.1% of the vote. Frisch conceded without any pushback.
