Incumbent U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert declared victory in the 3rd Congressional District election, while Democratic challenger Adam Frisch conceded on Friday morning, even as the race was headed toward an automatic recount.
Boebert spoke to our partners, KRDO, in Colorado Springs about the close election, likely recount and her presumed win.
Boebert declared victory Thursday night in a social media video message in which she thanked her campaign volunteers and voters for electing her to her second term in the U.S. House of Representatives.
On Friday afternoon, Boebert was ahead of Frisch by 554 votes, according to the state Secretary of State’s Office. The Associated Press estimated 99% of votes have been counted.
Frisch said he called Boebert to concede the race Friday. While he said that a recount is likely – automatic recounts are mandated in Colorado when the margin is less than 0.5% of the leader’s vote total – he also said it was unlikely the recount will significantly change the current results.
