She also tried to force an impeachment vote against President Joe Biden this spring, which Republican leadership killed by sending it to committees.

In her message, Boebert also alluded to the tough reelection race ahead of her in her current district.

“I will not allow dark money that is directed at destroying me personally to steal this seat,” Boebert said in her announcement.
