Adam Frisch, the Colorado Democrat who came surprisingly close to ousting far-right Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert in November, announced Tuesday that he is targeting a 2024 rematch.

«You heard it here first! I am officially launching my campaign to unseat Lauren Boebert and restore the dignity of #CO03 representation,» Frisch said in a cheep accompanying a campaign video laying out his background and why he wants to take down Boebert.

“She is part of the anger containment circus that is tearing our country apart,” Frisch said. “I will work across party lines to bring people together and get things done.”

Boebert, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, was expected to easily win re-election last year. However, Frisch’s better-than-expected performance meant that he won by less than 550 votes out of more than 325,000 cast.

“We lost by just 546 votes in ’22, the closest race in the country, and we know we can win that back in ’24,” Frisch said.

In Tuesday’s video, Frisch, a former Aspen city councilman who was virtually unknown outside of Colorado before the 2022 race, said his previous campaign was hampered by a lack of resources.

Ben Stout, a spokesman for Boebert, described her as an effective representative of her district and highlighted her role in obtaining concessions on House rules during Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s latest successful oratory bid early last month.

In an emailed statement, Stout said Boebert “fearlessly helped lead the way in making historic improvements in the running of Congress,” adding: “In just a few weeks since, Congresswoman Boebert has co-sponsored and helped pass 6 bills and authored 4 amendments, each passing on the House floor with bipartisan support.»

“She looks forward to continuing to serve Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, regardless of who stands against her,” Stout said.
