Adam Frisch is a Democrat running against Rep. Lauren “Squeaky” Boebert (Q-CO via Ted Cruz’s friend’s Koch money), but he’s been calling himself a “conservative businessman” in his campaign as a way to get voters to focus on the issues rather than party affiliation.
You can’t blame Frisch for trying a new tactic at a time when there’s no such thing as informed and intelligent political discourse, as evidenced by the crazy debate he had with Boebert.
Squeaky’s got a rap sheet longer than her face and won’t follow basic debate rules, so what are the odds she’s going to run a clean campaign?
However, Frisch makes a great point that voters are tired of Squeaky and her pal Marjorie Manson, aka the dueling, trained barking seal, QAnon plants, and what he’s cleverly dubbed their “angertainment” in getting attention.
If you want someone who stirs up culture wars, I’m not your candidate.
If you want a fighter for Western and Southern Colorado, I'm it.

Ah, basic facts and truth, how I wish you still mattered to a huge amount of the voting public. And by “a huge amount,” I mean Republicans.
I'm tired of lies. I'm tired of disinformation. I'm tired of religious fanatics. I'm tired of Lauren Boebert!

The antics are ridiculous. If you start a debate by saying you won’t follow the rules, you should be kicked off the stage, not allowed to whine like a child.
Of course, Squeaky is going to drive home that “D” by Frisch’s name, calling him “Aspen Adam” (because libruls and money, projects the woman who claimed enough campaign mileage to circumnavigate the globe several times). Bobo also manages to use her obsession with Nancy Pelosi against Frisch, as if he’s already besties with the Speaker and her “radical agenda.”
Classic #Boebert trying to have it both ways.

Frisch is completely on the mark when he says people are tired of Boebert, Greene, Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan, etc., and their antics.
Even Bobo’s former REPUBLICAN opponent agrees. He endorsed Frisch instead of his fellow member of the GOP.
