Gardner Embraces QAnon Conspiracy Theorist Lauren Boebert, Invites Her to Speak at His Campaign Event
Boebert Has Been Center of Controversy for Her Restaurant Defying State Orders, Breaking Law And Putting Public Health At Risk During Pandemic
Denver, CO – Just a week after her shocking primary upset, Senator Cory Gardner embraced QAnon conspiracy theory enthusiast and Republican’s CO-03 candidate Lauren Boebert, inviting his Republican ballot-mate to speak alongside him at Gardner office opening in Mesa County. Boebert, who upset five-term incumbent Congressman Scott Tipton, has been the center of controversy after she broke state law, then defied a cease and desist order to close her restaurant during the coronavirus pandemic.
At the campaign event, Gardner said “how it was exciting to be” at the campaign event with Boebert and praised the QAnon conspiracy theorist, saying that she “knows to fight for what she believes in.”
Colorado Democratic Party spokesperson Eli Rosen:
“Senator Gardner has fully embraced President Trump 100%, so it makes sense that he’d get on board with the QAnon conspiracy theorist they share a ticket with. If Gardner is so eager to campaign with Lauren Boebert, Coloradans deserve to know he’s okay with her defying public health orders and if Gardner agrees with her embrace of QAnon.”
