House Freedom Caucus Chairman U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs was in Grand Junction over the weekend stumping for Lauren Boebert, who is fast becoming a rising star on the national political scene.

Boebert’s ability to attract a heavy weight like Biggs is huge for her campaign, and will allow her to tap into the Freedom Caucus’ small dollar donor network.
Boebert has campaigned nonstop since she pulled an upset victory in the 3rd Congressional District Republican primary against U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton.
She met with voters in Mesa, Delta, and Montrose Counties this past weekend.
Similar to John Hickenlooper’s lackluster campaign, Boebert’s opponent, Diane Mitch Bush, is absolutely nowhere to be found. A quick scan of Bush’s twitter page reveals she has held zero events since the primary.
The basement strategy is par for the course for Democrats these days because they know if they get out and actually meet voters they would have to defend radical positions like raising taxes, Medicare for all, and allowing violent protestors to take over city streets with no consequences.
