Former president and current frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination Donald Trump endorsed embattled republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert Saturday despite her controversial history and the recent news that her son has been arrested and was accused of taking part in a series of car break-ins and credit card thefts in his mother’s home state.

Trump was not swayed by her domestic issues and wholeheartedly announced his support for the congresswoman in a Saturday 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,” Trump wrote in a post on TruthSocial on Saturday when announcing his endorsement. 

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

Boebert, as we have reported, has opted to switch districts as her current district doesn’t look favorable to her in the next election.

She’s seeking the seat left open by Ken Buck:

Boebert, who was first elected to Congress in 2020, announced in December she would be switching districts, abandoning the 3rd congressional and running for reelection this year in the 4th, the district currently represented by Rep. Ken Buck (R), who decided he will retire from his post at the lower chamber. 

She was obviously pumped by the endorsement:

That being said, she still faces an uphill climb to be elected again:

She defended her decision to switch districts, saying she and her family needed a “fresh start.”

Boebert’s new district is solidly Republican and could give her a better chance at reelection if she secures the GOP nomination. But a straw poll from late January that came out following the first debate among GOP candidates in the 4th District shows that Boebert might have a tough time clinching the nomination. 

Boebert came fifth with 12 votes, behind Logan County Commissioner Jerry Sonnenberg with 22 votes, former Colorado House Minority Leader Mike Lynch with 20 votes, Douglas County filmmaker Deborah Flora with 18 votes, and state House Minority Whip Richard Holtorf with 17 votes. 

Time will tell whether Trump’s endorsement will take her over the finish line.
