Adam Frisch Raises $500k in Three Days for Boebert Rematch

Adam Frisch, the Democrat who came within 546 votes of making Lauren Boebert a one-term Congresswoman, announced an eye-popping fundraising haul of over half a million dollars… since Tuesday, when he announced his intent to run again next year.

As a blue wave rolled across Colorado last November, its high water mark surprised even the most partisan Democratic cheerleaders: the Third Congressional District, a longtime Republican stronghold and newly claimed home of Colorado’s controversial conservative bomb-thrower.

“The outpouring of support we have received this week is a testament to the fact that people in this district and across the nation are ready for Boebert’s angertainment circus to stop,” said Frisch. “The people of Western and Southern Colorado deserve a leader who will focus on the needs of the district to protect our water, create jobs, and achieve energy independence – not one like Boebert who is only focused on herself. I’m more confident than ever that we will defeat Rep. Boebert in 2024.”

The campaign notes it received donations from all 27 counties in CD3 as well as all 50 states.

Boebert, however, has parlayed her social media fame into prodigious fundraising herself, having raised nearly $7.5 million for her reelection campaign last year. She ended 2022 with about 770k in the bank, approximately double the Frisch campaign’s remaining cash on hand.

Republicans noted Frisch’s viability as well, with Denver Post columnist Krista Kafer using his announcement as the hook for her column’s lede yesterday: “Perhaps now she will rise to the dignity of the office.”

Kafer acknowledged the slim chance of her optimistic opening coming true later in her piece when she wrote, “the Frisch announcement is good news. Moderates within the GOP have time to establish a viable alternative to Boebert in the Republican primary. Potential contenders need to begin raising money and gaining visibility within the district.”

Given the drubbing Boebert gave to her last primary challenger, the well-known state Sen. Don Coram, that possibility seems almost as unlikely as Boebert becoming a paragon of civility.

The Frisch campaign is hosting a meet & greet at Base Camp Beer Works in Grand Junction this afternoon from 4:30 – 6:00 PM.

  1. I’m not contributing to any campaign this year. I did get an email from Michael Bennet suggesting I give a donation to be split between Frisch and Bennet. But Bennet just got re-elected. Come “see me” in late 2027 or early 2028.

    However, Frisch will be on my campaign donation list early next year.

     

  2. Building name recognition is most critical. I'm not suggesting that Frisch talk crazy just for the click-bait, but he's got to build name recognition above all else.

    1. He's doing pretty good in that department as the "guy who almost took out Two-Gun Tootise". When he announced his was running again 2024, it was a lead headline of every newsfeed I get (including those from London).

      In 2022, he suffered the problem of not being taken seriously….until he forced a recount. I think EVERYONE will be watching CO-3 now.
