Boebert campaign sounds alarm bells over poll results 
Rep. Lauren Boebert’s campaign sent three emails to supporters last week expressing concern over polling that showed the second-term congresswoman trailing her potential 2024 Democratic opponent, former Aspen City Councilman Adam Frisch, by 2 percentage points. In emails sent on Aug. 28, Aug. 29 and Wednesday, the Silt Republican’s campaign said the poll should be cause for concern among Republicans, who have traditionally dominated Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District. The district includes the Roaring Fork Valley, along with most of the Western Slope, the San Luis Valley, Pueblo and a portion of the eastern plains. “If we don’t turn things around quickly, we could lose this seat to the Democrats. I can’t believe I’m saying those words, but I need you to understand how dire this situation is. [Frisch’s] latest internal polls have him beating us by two points,” read an email sent by Boebert’s campaign on Aug. 29.

The 2024 election may be 14 months away, but things are already heating up in Lauren Boebert’s congressional district 
More than a year ahead of the 2024 election, the battle in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District is already heating up. Republican U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert faces multiple GOP and Democratic challengers. A liberal dark-money group is spending gobs of money to weaken the congresswoman’s image. And national organizations are preparing to invest heavily in the race. While the 3rd District — which spans across the Western Slope into Pueblo and southeastern Colorado — has been written off in recent years as reliably Republican, Boebert’s vulnerability in the GOP-leaning district was made clear by her narrow, 546-vote win in 2022 over Democrat Adam Frisch, a former Aspen city councilman.

Boebert to IRS: Don’t tax TABOR refunds 
U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert has sent a letter of her own to the Internal Revenue Service asking it not to tax refunds Coloradans receive as a result of the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights. That letter, sent on Tuesday, is nearly identical to a similar one that the rest of Colorado’s congressional delegation sent to the IRS asking the same thing. At the time, Boebert was criticized for not also signing onto that first letter, sent Aug. 31, but that’s only because she was notified of the letter while traveling and only given an hour to respond, her office said.

Trump stirs speculation over second GOP debate 
“President Trump usually comes up with something creative, but also it’s not really necessary,” Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), a prominent Trump ally, told The Hill. “… He has been out and about with the people for nearly three years now since he left the White House. He has still had a very strong presence throughout our nation.”
