Lauren Boebert isn’t wasting any time on the campaign trail since her election upset last week over U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton in the 3rd Congressional District’s GOP primary.

The Rifle Republican celebrated the 4th of July with members of the Trump family at Mount Rushmore, has hired a slew of staffers, and appeared at an event Tuesday with U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner.

It’s more than some in the media can bear.

The Colorado Times Recorder, for example, did not attend the event with Gardner but a reporter did dissect a tweeted photo for a “story.”

The photos show Gardner talking to a maskless Boebert who’s wearing a gun on her hop. Gardner has no gun. No other guns were visible in the photos.

Gardner took off his mask to speak to the crowd.

That is the crux of the entire story, guns were worn, masks not so much. 

Meanwhile, Colorado Politics reports on the new campaign staffers Boebert has recruited: Laura Carno, communications director; Shana Kohn Banberger, finance director; Kristi Burton Brown, policy advisor; and, Jessica Hayden, scheduler.
