Lauren Boebert and Adam Frisch tied among likely 2024 voters, new poll says 
The poll, conducted by progressive organizations ProgressNow Colorado and Global Strategy Group, surveyed 500 likely voters and 100 unaffiliated likely voters in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District between March 29 and April 2. It has a 4.4% margin of error. “Lauren Boebert, in a Republican-leaning district, is tied going into the 2024 presidential election cycle,” ProgressNow Colorado executive direct Sara Loflin said of the results. The race was unexpectedly close in the 2022 midterms. Boebert, the highly controversial conservative lawmaker, beat Frisch by just 546 votes in the right-leaning district. It was redrawn in the recent redistricting process and favors a Republican candidate by 9 percentage points.

Texas judge’s abortion pill ruling supported by 69 Republicans in Congress 
A group of 69 congressional Republicans is backing a federal judge’s ruling that would overturn the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s two-decade-old approval of the abortion pill mifepristone. The 11 GOP senators and 58 House lawmakers, including Lauren Boebert and Doug Lamborn of Colorado, who filed a brief in the appeals case, broke the relative silence from Republicans in Congress on the Friday ruling, though no members of leadership signed onto the brief. “By approving and deregulating chemical abortion drugs, the FDA has not followed Congress’ statutorily prescribed drug approval process and has subverted Congress’ critical public policy interests in upholding patient welfare,” the GOP lawmakers wrote.
Republicans Dust Off Anti-D.C. Playbook to Sound Tough on Crime 
“It’s their capital,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) said of his constituents. “Their capital is getting overrun by crime, they want to be able to come here and try to live safely.” But some Republicans came under fire for the tone of their remarks. Rep. Gary Palmer (Ala.), a member of GOP leadership, faced blowback for calling D.C. schools “inmate factories.” Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) inaccurately said the criminal code Congress overthrew was still law, and she pressed a witness about his nonexistent support for decriminalization of public urination. “People who watched it might have become more sympathetic to the District,” Mendelson said of Boebert’s line of questioning.

Musk, Boebert call to ‘defund’ NPR after it quit Twitter 
Elon Musk and Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) called for NPR to be defunded after the outlet announced it would no longer use Twitter due to the social media platform slapping it with a “government-funded media” label. “Defund @NPR,” Musk tweeted on Wednesday, after sharing an email that said the media outlet was no longer using Twitter. Boebert responded to the Musk Tweet by saying “I’ve been saying that for quite some time! Let’s get it done!”
Lauren Boebert Boasts of Record Hearings Despite ‘Very Little to Show’ 
Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert is boasting about the number of committee hearings House Republicans are holding because “they have almost nothing else to brag about,” according to a prominent academic. Republicans have launched several investigations targeting the Biden administration in recent months, with Lauren Boebert saying the House GOP had “set a new record for the amount of hearings in a single day,” with no group ever having “worked harder to get this country back on track.” The GOP took control of the House of Representatives in January, following the November midterm elections, though crucially they are still a minority in the Senate. After taking over, House Republicans launched a number of investigations including into the 2021 fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban, the Biden family’s “domestic and international business dealings” and what they called the “weaponization” of the federal government against conservatives.

Lauren Boebert’s Eldest Son’s Car Wreck Injured Friend, Led to Criminal Charges 
Like mother, like son. On September 17, 2022, Representative Lauren Boebert’s eldest son, Tyler, was issued a “careless driving causing bodily injury” ticket in connection with a late-night car crash in which he flipped his father’s SUV into a Garfield County creek bed. Noble D’Amato, a nineteen-year-old friend of Tyler’s who was riding shotgun, wound up hospitalized with multiple concussions and a severely lacerated hand. “I still have problems with my hand,” D’Amato says. “My thumb almost got cut off. It prevented me from getting a welding job, because I can’t hold a TIG torch anymore. I’m a personal-care provider now.”
