Calls for newly elected Congressmember Lauren Boebert to resign are increasing across Colorado’s Third District. Reasons range from her role in the attempted overthrow of election results, to tweets like “Today is 1776” the morning of the insurrection, and sharing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s whereabouts while the Capitol was under siege. Retired marine George Autobee from Pueblo co-chairs Rural Colorado United.

Democrat Diane Mitsch Bush is running for Congress in Colorado's Third District against Lauren Boebert. She is a former college professor with a PhD in sociology, previously elected as a county commissioner and state representative. Should voters choose a veteran politican known for bipartisan compromise over a newcomer with a gun on her hip and no political experience? KVNF reporter Gavin Dahl spoke with Mitsch Bush on Monday, October 19th to learn more about her views. Here is the entire unedited interview.

On Thursday morning, I sat down with Ray Langston, the chairman of the Montrose County Republican Party, on the front porch outside their headquarters. He says fundraising and organizing have been challenging during the coronavirus pandemic, particularly having to cancel the annual Lincoln Reagan Dinner, but they still plan to knock on doors for Donald Trump and work to get other candidates elected down the ballot. And he's confident that Lauren Boebert, who upset incumbent Scott Tipton in the Republican Primary, will be successful in the Third Congressional District race against Democrat Diane Mitsch Bush, a former state legislator from Steamboat Springs.
