As of June 30, 2020, Democrat Diane Mitsch Bush raised $325,000 for the quarter. Mitsch Bush is a former state representative and county commissioner.
Bush’s funding represents more than triple the amount of funding that populist candidate Lauren Boebert received —$88,000— in her bid for office in the open 3rd Congressional District seat in Colorado. Boebert is a restaurant owner who pulled off a surprise upset against congressman Scott Tipton in the GOP primary.
However, Boebert’s campaign spokeswoman was not fazed by the disparity in fundraising. She pointed out that Boebert was significantly outspent by Tipton and still ended up defeating the five-term incumbent.
“Lauren campaigned on doing more with less, and her historic win demonstrates she did just that,” Laura Carno said to Colorado Politics in a statement. “She looks forward to the general election campaign where she will share her message of freedom and prosperity with the voters of the 3rd CD.”
Boebert only spent $142,000 through the June 30 primary. This stood in contrast to the nearly $590,000 that Tipton spent. Tipton reported that his campaign had $725,000 left in the bank at the end of the quarter.
“Our winning campaign is powered by everyday people — nurses, teachers, and veterans — and not a dime of Corporate PAC money,” declared Mitsch Bush. “In Congress, I’ll be accountable to the people, and I’ll take on the special interests in Washington to lower drug costs and expand access to healthcare for rural Coloradans.”
Mitsch Bush lost to Tipton by 8 percentage points in the 2018 election cycle. She has raised north of $1.1 million for her 2020 bid. Boebert announced her candidacy in December and has raised $151,000 so far.
President Donald Trump won the 3rd Congressional district by 12 points in 2016. The last time Democrats held this seat was from 2004 until 2010, under Ken Salazar.
Boebert has positioned herself as the pro-gun candidate and is one of the strongest nationalist populist candidates running in this cycle. America First patriots can donate to her campaign here.
Boebert will need all the help she can get.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
