Lauren Boebert, the Republican candidate for the US House of Representatives seat in Colorado's 3rd Congressional District, addresses supporters during a campaign rally in Delta, Colorado on October 10, 2020. - Boebert's meteoric rise into politics began in September 2019 when she confronted US Democratic presidential candidate Beto ORourke at a campaign rally and stated "Hell no, youre not!" to his proposed mandatory buyback of both AR-15 and AK-47 semi-automatic weapons. With her "Pro-Freedom, Pro-Guns, Pro-Constitution, Pro-Energy, Pro-Life, Pro-Colorado, Pro-America" platform, Boebert defeated 5-term incumbent US Rep. Scott Tipton in Colorado's GOP primary, and is now challenged by former Colorado state lawmaker Democratic candidate Diane Mitsch Bush. A win by Boebert in the November election, would keep Colorado's 3rd Congressional District in the GOP hands.

A GOP representative challenged the Capitol’s focus prior to Friday’s attack. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) took to Twitter Friday to question whether the FBI and DHS were too focused on “woke training” to foresee a potential threat from the suspect.

This came as several Republicans have been critical of Biden for prioritizing a progressive environment at the expense of national security.

In the meantime, while the event seems to be isolated, the suspect identified himself as a follower of the Nation of Islam on Facebook prior to the attack that left one officer dead.
