Congresswoman-elect Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) made an official announcement on Thursday that on behalf of her constituents she will object to Electoral College results in the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress.
“Guided by the US Constitution and my responsibility to my constituents, I will object to the Electoral College results on January 6th,” wrote Boebert in a Twitter post.
Boebert was criticized for the post by a news analyst and writer who accused the freshman congresswoman of “bombastic symbolic acts” to further her congressional career.
Boebert responded, “Newsflash: I’m not here to make a career for myself. I’m here to save our country from socialists.”
The newly elected Colorado lawmaker has also been an outspoken supporter of the Second Amendment. (Read more from “Newly Elected Lawmaker Joins House Members Who Will Object To Electors on Jan. 6” HERE)
