BREAKING NEWS: Democrat CONCEDES to Lauren Boebert in nail-biting Colorado race: Adam Frisch says recount won't change result as GOP firebrand hangs onto House seat

By NIKKI SCHWAB, SENIOR U.S. POLITICAL REPORTER
18 November 2022

Democrat Adam Frisch said Friday he called and conceded to Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert on Friday as their race in Colorado was headed to a recount.

At a press conference, Frisch said the close race wasn't close enough for him to win.

'The voters have spoken,' Frisch said. 'The likelihood of this recount changing more than a handful of votes is very, very small.'

A Democrat did the right thing?

I'd buy him a beer for that one. I'm sure Twitter is pissed.

I know states laws are different in that regard, it may be in CO that concession ends it, recount worthy or not.

Colorado election results: Boebert opponent Frisch concedes race ahead of likely recount

More than a week after Election Day, the race for Colorado's 3rd Congressional District remains uncalled and is likely headed to an automatic recount, but Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert's Democratic challenger conceded the election Friday.

Boebert held a threadbare lead over former Aspen City Council member Adam Frisch, a Democrat.

As of Friday, with nearly all the votes counted, Boebert holds a 551-vote lead over Frisch out of nearly 327,000 votes cast, a difference of 0.16 percentage points. The Associated Press has deemed the race too close to call and will not do so until a potential recount happens.

Under Colorado state law, a mandatory recount occurs when the margin of victory in an election is within half a percentage point.

A recount in the race could take several weeks to complete. A Colorado statute instructs that a recount must be completed 35 days after the general election, which would be Dec. 13 this year.

Boebert declared victory Thursday night in a video posted on social media.

"I'm told that there are less than 200 votes outstanding, which makes me so happy to announce we have won this race!" Boebert said. "With this victory and with Republicans in control of the House of Representatives, we can focus on the issues that actually matter most, including getting inflation under control, increasing our domestic energy supply, securing the southern border, and being a strong check on the White House." .............

.............Later Friday, Frisch held a press conference and announced he had called Boebert to concede the race. Noting that his campaign did not ask for a recount, which is mandated by law, he called Colorado elections "safe, accurate, and secure," and told his supporters it would be "unethical" to continue raising funds for an effort that had little chance of reversing the results.

Frisch again thanked his supporters and volunteers and remarked that his campaign showed how Democrats need to reach voters in rural parts of America.

"The Democratic Party has slowly but surely eroded the trust of rural and working class Americans. Denver and D.C. politicians need to demonstrate an understanding of the issues that face rural America, working class America, and celebrate, not disrespect, folks across the country," Frisch said. ....................

I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
    I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.
