Ahead of Congressional Vote to Certify 2020 Election Results, Colorado Dems Condemn Boebert, Lamborn’s Planned Objections
Denver, CO – Ahead of today’s Congressional Vote to certify the 2020 Presidential Election Results, the Colorado Democratic Party released the following statement on Lauren Boebert and Doug Lamborn’s baseless plans to object today:
Morgan Carroll, Chair of the Colorado Democratic Party:
“After more than 50 lawsuits, countless audits, and numerous recounts, courts at every level and nonpartisan election officials all across the country came to the same, indisputable conclusion: Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election, and on January 20, he will be sworn in as our 46th president. Yet, Boebert and Lamborn continue to embarrass themselves by pushing conspiracy theories about supposed ‘voter fraud’ with zero evidence to show for it.
“Trump, Boebert, and Lamborn are trying to overthrow an election because they don’t like the outcome. They are setting a new and dangerous precedent unseen in this nation’s history — to refuse to accept election results if your preferred candidate does not win. This is an affront to our basic principles of democracy, free and fair elections, and a waste of the taxpayers’ time and money. Boebert and Lamborn need to do their jobs and actually serve their constituents — not Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani.”
