YUGE: Pro-Second Amendment Conservative Candidate Lauren Boebert Upsets Establishment Republican Candidate in the Primaries

Published

on

Pro-Second Amendment activist Lauren Boebert pulled off a major upset against five-term Colorado Congressman Scott Tipton on June 30, 2020.

Tipton is the current five-term congressman for Colorado’s 3rd district.

Boebert is a pro-gun champion who confronted failed Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke during a talk he gave at the Denver suburb of Aurora.  She pushed back against the failed Senate candidate’s desire to confiscate AR-15s by telling him, “”I am here to say: Hell, no, you’re not.” Boebert was referring to O’Rourke’s comments about gun confiscation in the third Democratic primary debate.

According to the Associated Press, Boebert supports building a wall and wants to abolish the U.S. Department of Education.

Boebert called out Tipton for his milquetoast performance in Congress.

“A sober look at the Tipton Record shows a back-burner representative that has failed to live up to his conservative chops that he touted on his Tea Party-inspired campaign trail,” Boebert declared in a recent Aspen Times column. “If his record lived up to his campaign rhetoric, I wouldn’t feel so compelled to run.”

Tipton conceded defeat graciously.

“(Third) District Republicans have decided who they want to run against the Democrats this November,” Tipton wrote. “I want to congratulate Lauren Boebert and wish her and her supporters well.”

Boebert has not shied away from controversy lately. She recently protested Democrat Governor Jared Polis’ orders to close businesses to fight the Wuhan virus pandemic. She exercised civil disobedience by opening her Shooters Grill restaurant despite the shutdown order in place

Boebert’s race was another case of President Donald Trump endorsing the incumbent, while the primary opponent ended up winning.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
