Boebert’s Democratic challenger raises three times more than her

Adam Frisch, the Democrat who came close to beating Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) in last year’s midterms, raised three times more than the incumbent in second-quarter fundraising as he seeks a 2024 rematch.

Frisch’s campaign reported bringing in $2.6 million from April through June, which is more than triple Boebert’s roughly $818,000, the Colorado Sun reports.

It’s the second quarter in a row Frisch has outraised Bobert — he raised $1.7 million in the first quarter, while Boebert reportedly brought in around $764,000.

Frisch’s campaign earlier this month said the second-quarter amount they raised breaks the record “for the largest quarterly fundraising for a U.S. House challenger in the year before an election, excluding special elections and self-funded campaigns.”

Frisch lost his challenge against Boebert in the 2022 midterms by 546 votes. The difference of less than half a percentage point triggered an automatic recount, but he conceded to Boebert before the recount was finished.

Frisch then launched a 2024 bid for Colorado’s third congressional district against Boebert in February, positioning himself as a moderate alternative to the conservative Trump ally.

Polling in recent months has indicated the possible Frisch-Boebert rematch again could be a close race.

The Hill has reached out to the Frisch and Boebert campaigns for comment.

I hope Adam Frisch kicks her ass in the election. She is one of the worst politicians in the House.

Why not put his name in the headline? It's Adam Frisch.

He almost beat her last time. He can beat her this time if Dems play hardball and get on the ground to get the word out.
