Trump endorses Boebert: a 'trusted America First Fighter'

Former President Trump offered his endorsement to Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), calling the controversial congresswoman a “trusted America First Fighter.” 

Trump said Boebert is a “proven conservative” and a leader who delivers for her constituents in Colorado. 

“She has led the fight to Impeach Joe Biden, Stop Illegal Immigration, Defend the Second Amendment, Protect our Wonderful Ranchers and Farmers, Support our Military and Veterans, Secure our Natural Resources to Pursue Energy Dominance, and Stand Up to the Radical Democrats who want to Destroy our Beautiful Country,” Trump wrote in a post on TruthSocial on Saturday when announcing his endorsement. 

“Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is a trusted America First Fighter, and has my Complete and Total Endorsement for Colorado’s 4th Congressional District!” 

Boebert, who was first elected to Congress in 2020, announced in December she would be switching districts, abandoning her 3rd congressional district and running for reelection this year in the 4th, the district currently represented by Rep. Ken Buck (R) who decided he will retire from his post at the lower chamber. 

She defended her decision to switch districts, saying she and her family needed a “fresh start.”

Boebert’s new district is solidly Republican and could give her a better chance at reelection if she secures the GOP nomination. But a straw poll from late January that came out following the first debate among GOP candidates in the 4th District shows that Boebert might have a tough time clinching the nomination. 

Boebert came fifth with 12 votes, behind Logan County Commissioner Jerry Sonnenberg with 22 votes, former Colorado House Minority Leader Mike Lynch with 20 votes, Douglas County filmmaker Deborah Flora with 18 votes and state House Minority Whip Richard Holtorf with 17 votes.

Boebert expressed gratitude for Trump’s endorsement. 

“It’s my honor to have the endorsement of the greatest President our country has ever known – Donald J. Trump,” Boebert wrote Saturday on X, formerly known as Twitter. “It will be such a privilege to work alongside him in 2024 to deliver results for Colorado & get the entire country back on track!”
