Dem House candidate ‘cautiously optimistic’ about surprisingly tight race with Boebert

Adam Frisch, the Democrat running to unseat outspoken Republican Lauren Boebert, said Wednesday he always felt it was going to be a tight race for the House seat in Colorado.

“It is a lesson to everybody that every single vote matters,” Frisch told host Joy Reid on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut.”

Before Tuesday, the race was forecast as likely favoring Boebert, in a far-flung district that became more red after recent redistricting. The congresswoman and gun rights activist is one of the most far-right members of her party, an ardent backer of former President Donald Trump and gun rights.

But Frisch, who cast himself as a moderate, led Boebert by 73 votes at the time of writing, with 98 percent of the votes counted.

Asked whether he expected Boebert to concede if she lost, Frisch said she would “probably battle.”

“That generates money, and that’s all part of the anger-tainment industry,” Frisch said.

While Frisch said he felt good about the places where votes are still outstanding, he used a Colorado-ism to describe his outlook: “I don’t want to get over my skis.”
