  • The race between U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert and her Democratic challenger Adam Frisch appeared to be headed to a recount Thursday after the Republican’s lead narrowed through the day as most counties in Colorado’s largely rural 3rd Congressional District posted final, unofficial vote totals.
  • Although a recount looked to be a certainty — delaying official results until mid-December — recounts in Colorado elections in recent decades have never swung the outcome as far as Frisch would need to prevail in the congressional race, making it equally likely that Boebert has won reelection to a second term.
  • Boebert declared victory on Twitter Thursday night.
