Nothing to panic over. This is just the 'traditional' Republican Party getting back to business.

Businesswoman upsets 5-term congressman in Colorado primary
[apnews.com]

DENVER (AP) — Five-term Colorado U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton was upset in Tuesday’s Republican Party primary by Lauren Boebert, a pistol-packing businesswoman, ardent defender of gun rights and border wall supporter who wants to abolish the U.S. Department of Education.

Boebert won after a campaign in which she accused Tipton of not being sufficiently pro-Donald Trump even though the president had endorsed Tipton, and even though Tipton is the Trump campaign’s co-chair for Colorado. Trump congratulated Boebert on Twitter, saying, “Congratulations on a really great win.”

She will run in November’s general election against Diane Mitsch Bush, who won the Democratic nomination on Tuesday by defeating James Iacino.

Boebert has also expressed support for the QAnon conspiracy theory.

She's the second Republican backer of the theory to win a congressional primary this cycle. The theory posits that Trump and the military are working together to expose and arrest a shadowy cabal of global elites and Democratic establishment figures who control the government and run a global child sex trafficking ring.

When Boebert appeared on a right-wing internet show named Steel Truth in May, she was asked her thoughts on Q, the mysterious figure who posts anonymous messages online that serve as the foundation for the theory.

"I am familiar with that," she responded. "Everything I've heard of Q - I hope this is real. Because it only means America is getting stronger and better and people are returning to conservative values."

For those both-sides-do-it folks, could you point to an example where a liberal/progressive candidate loudly espousing wild internet theories about hidden global conspiracies defeated a long time incumbent of the same party in a primary?

These folks are just stark raving bonkers.

It's Ben Nighthorse Campbell's old district - it swings and the Democrat could win in a wave election.

Let's hope the wacko is sufficiently wacko to frighten the middle toward the non-wacko.

Indiana had a Democrat senator for one term because the Republican nominee was too much for even Red Hoosiers to accept. Might be a model for Colorado.
