House firebrands AOC, Boebert sail to easy primary victories

by ian

Primary season has delivered some predictable outcomes. New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez easily defeated her more moderate challenger as she now heads to a likely fourth term in Congress.

Meanwhile, on the Republican side, conservative firebrand Lauren Boebert won the GOP primary to replace outgoing congressman Ken Buck in Colorado’s 4th district.

Boebert switched districts last year, possibly to avoid a tough reelection following her theater scandal last fall. Boebert said she needed “a fresh start” following her divorce.
