Frisch off to big fundraising lead in early going of bid to unseat 3rd Congressional District incumbent Boebert
Democrat Adam Frisch outraised U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert by nearly $1 million in the first three months of the year and finished March with $257,000 more in the bank than the Garfield County Republican as the two head toward a 2024 rematch.
Most of Frisch’s advantage came from small donors giving the former Aspen city councilman less than $200 each, reports filed Saturday with the Federal Election Commission show.
Boebert beat Frisch by 546 votes in 2022 and their 3rd Congressional District race next year is shaping up to be the most competitive U.S. House contests in the nation. A Democrat-aligned dark-money nonprofit is already spending money seeking to undermine Boebert’s image.
The 3rd District candidates’ fundraising far outpaced the money raised in the first three months of the year by other Colorado congressional candidates, including the state’s two new Democratic representatives, who have yet to draw 2024 opponents.
