Trump gives Boebert a boost amid family troubles

Former President Donald Trump endorsed U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) over the weekend in her quest to be reelected for a third term.

Boebert won in 2022 by just 546 votes over Democrat Adam Frisch. The GOP lawmaker announced in December that she would run in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District in 2024, a seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Rep. Ken Buck (R). While the district is the state’s most conservative, there are 10 Republicans vying for the nomination.

“Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is a Proven Conservative and Effective Leader who delivers for Colorado, and our America First agenda,” Trump said in a Truth Social post. “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.

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

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

The former president’s stamp of approval comes at a good time for the embattled congresswoman. In addition to a messy divorce, Boebert’s son was recently arrested in Rifle, Colorado for a string of alleged thefts in her district. Tyler Boebert, 18, is facing 22 criminal charges that include five felonies.

The arrest comes on the heels of her ex-husband being arrested in January following a confrontation between the couple — there were allegations that Boebert had punched her ex-husband in the face twice days earlier.

Jayson Boebert, the father of her four sons, was charged with third-degree assault, prohibited use of weapons, obstructing a peace officer, harassment, and disorderly conduct.

And then there was the infamous Sept. 2023 “Beetlejuice” date with Aspen bar owner Quinn Gallagher — Boebert was asked to leave a theater for allegedly vaping and taking pictures during the performance. Leaked surveillance camera footage captured the couple seemingly groping each other.
