Grand Junction mayor enters Democratic bid to unseat Boebert 
Another Democrat has declared for the race to unseat U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert. Grand Junction Mayor Anna Stout filed paperwork Thursday announcing her bid. She will face former Aspen City Council member Adam Frisch in the Democratic primary next summer. “It’s no secret that Lauren Boebert has repeatedly failed to represent our values in Congress, and her only accomplishment has been making a name for herself as a member of the most extreme faction of her party,” Stout said in a statement. “Colorado’s 3rd congressional district deserves better. As the mayor of my hometown, the largest city in Western Colorado, I have a record of bringing people together to get things done and listening to the people I represent. I will take that same work ethic to Congress and build on my record of delivering real results for the hardworking people of our district.” Frisch came within 600 votes of beating Boebert in November and already holds a multimillion-dollar fundraising advantage over the incumbent.

U.S. House spending bill for the VA renews fight over abortion access, transgender care 
The House Appropriations Committee has written the dozen annual bills to funding levels well below the bipartisan agreement that Speaker Kevin McCarthy and President Joe Biden negotiated earlier this year when they brokered a debt limit agreement. But those lower funding levels on discretionary programs, which make up about one-third of annual federal spending, aren’t low enough for the far-right Freedom Caucus, which includes Reps. Lauren Boebert and Ken Buck of Colorado. That group has been calling for House Republican leaders to cut additional spending and discount so-called budget gimmicks that claw back already approved federal spending and then reallocate it to spending in the GOP bills.

Lauren Boebert blames her AirPods after she threw away photo of 10-year-old Uvalde victim 
Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has posted a video in which she apologises for throwing away a pamphet depicting a photo of a 10-year-old girl murdered during the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, along with a memorial pin that she was handed by a gun violence activist. Ms Boebert’s video was obtained by the liberal Twitter profile PatriotTakes; it wasn’t immediately clear where it had been first posted. But in the video, Ms Boebert addressed the now semi-viral clip of her tossing away the pamphlet in question after receiving it moments earlier.

Lauren Boebert rages at Pete Buttigieg for problem House Republicans aren’t solving 
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is angry again at out Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, this time because experts predict that the North American aviation industry will be short 30,000 pilots over the next decade. Buttigieg talked about the current, smaller shortage in a CBS News interview and how it’s affecting flights: “There’s definitely gaps in places. The system is just uneven right now.” He said that the Department of Transportation is actively investigating several airlines that engage in “unrealistic scheduling”; that is, they’re scheduling flights and selling tickets without having the crews necessary to operate the flights, leading to cancellations and delays and other flight disruptions.
