In Congress, Boebert has associated herself with the conservative Republican Study Committee, the right-wing Freedom Caucus, of which she became the communications chair in January 2022, and the pro-gun Second Amendment Caucus.

She won reelection in 2022 by a narrow margin of 546 votes against former Aspen City Council member Adam Frisch.

Boebert’s views are broadly considered far-right. She is an ally and supporter of former president Donald Trump. She supports Trump’s claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him and voted to overturn its results during the Electoral College vote count.

She is accused of supporting the QAnon conspiracy theory, and some academic and journalistic sources have investigated her ties to far-right extremism.

She opposes transitioning to green energy, COVID-19 mask and vaccine mandates, abortion, s3x education, gender-affirming surgery for minors, and same-s3x marriage.

She advocates an isolationist foreign policy, but supports closer ties with Israel for religious reasons.

A self-described born-again Christian, Lauren Boebert has said that she is “tired of this separation of church and state junk” and argued for greater church power and influence in government decision-making.

Lauren Boebert Biography

Lauren Boebert was born as Lauren Roberts on December 19, 1986 in Altamonte Springs, Florida.

When she was 12, she moved with her family to Denver, Colorado; they later moved to Aurora before finally settling in Rifle in 2003. Boebert went to Rifle High School, but dropped out in her senior year after having a baby.

Career Beginnings

After dropping out of high school, Boebert became an assistant manager at a McDonald’s in Rifle. Later, following her marriage, she had a filing job at a natural gas drilling company. Boebert eventually became a pipeliner.

Restaurants

In 2013, Lauren Boebert and her husband opened the restaurant Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado. She encouraged the restaurant’s staff to openly carry firearms due to a false claim she made that a man was beaten to death outside of the restaurant.

Boebert also owned a restaurant across the street called Smokehouse 1776, and had another restaurant called Putters that she sold in late 2016.

In 2017, temporary locations set up by Shooters Grill and Smokehouse 1776 allegedly caused a food poisoning outbreak at a fair in Garfield County.

The restaurants reportedly did not have permits to operate their temporary locations, and that they allegedly handled the food without proper hygiene. According to her congressional disclosure forms, the restaurant lost $143,000 in 2019 and $226,000 in 2020.

Boebert caused more chaos in 2020 during the COVID pandemic when she violated Colorado’s stay-at-home order by reopening Shooters Grill for dine-in. Her food license was soon suspended, and Shooters Grill was eventually shuttered in the summer of 2022.

US House of Representatives

Lauren Boebert decided to enter federal politics in late 2019 when she announced her campaign to represent Colorado’s 3rd congressional district as a US representative.

Facing five-term incumbent Scott Tipton in the Republic primary, and then Democrat Diane Mitsch Bush in the general, Boebert ran on a campaign that celebrated far-right extremism and gun ownership. She also vocally embraced conspiracy theories promoted by QAnon. Boebert ultimately won the election.

In 2021, Boebert got into trouble with the FEC for using her reelection campaign funds for personal expenses. She eventually submitted documents to the FEC showing that the money was used for rental and utilities bills, and that it had since been reimbursed.

However, controversy continued to plague her during her campaign, mostly for the many inflammatory and false statements she made.

Notably, Boebert perpetuated the Big Lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, and claimed that Anthony Fauci was responsible for facilitating the COVID pandemic. She still managed to pull out the win in the general election, albeit by a very narrow margin.

Political Positions

Lauren Boebert opposes women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights, clean energy, sex education, gun control, universal healthcare, and safety measures in the control of COVID-19. During the height of the pandemic, she objected to facemasks and vaccines, and was fined for violating Congress’s mask mandate.

Among her other positions, she supported the insurrectionists who stormed the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, and subsequently voted to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Boebert has advocated for the abolishment of the US Department of Education. She has made racist remarks about other US representatives, including Ilhan Omar.
