Born in Florida on December 15, 1986, she and her parents moved to Colorado when she was 12 years old.
Who is Lauren Boebert?
Boebert defeated incumbent Congressman Scott Tipton in the 2020 primary election, becoming the first woman to represent Colorado’s 3rd Congressional district in Congress.
During Beto O’Rourke’s 2020 presidential campaign at Aurora, Colorado, Boebert challenged the presidential hopeful over his proposal for a gun buyback program, saying, “Hell, no, you will not take our guns.”
In November 2020, Boebert said she planned to carry a gun while working as a congresswoman on Capitol Hill in Washington DC.
After the violent Capitol riots on January 6, 2021, the gun-rights activist led a charge against the new metal detector measures at Capitol Hill.
Boebert criticized the Capitol’s screening process demands and branded it a “political stunt” from Nancy Pelosi.
The gun activist owns Shooters Grill, a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado, where staffers are encouraged to openly carry firearms.
Amid her win for office, Boebert took to Twitter on November 4, 2021, to mock Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Met Gala “Tax the Rich” dress.
Instead, Bobert’s dress said “Let’s Go Brandon,” a common derogatory phrase said against Joe Biden.
The representative posed with former President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort and shared the photo on Twitter, captioning it: “It’s not a phrase, it’s a movement!”
