There is a town in Colorado calledRIFLE. Hartman voted for Boebert for Congress in 2020 and again in 2022. Hartman had one piece of advice for the Colorado lawmaker as she was shopping at the supermarket.

Hartman said to "tone down the nasty rhetoric on occasion and just stick with the point at hand."

Boebert is beginning her second term in the House. She has built a national profile with a combative style embracing everything from gun ownership to apocalyptic religious rhetoric. Hartman in the Republican-leaning 3rd Congressional District lauds Boebert for defending their rights, but cringes at her provocations, which contributed to an unexpectedly tight race last year that she won by just 546 votes.

Alex Mason said that Boebert is more tactful than Donald Trump because she tapped into what he was doing.

Boebert said that the slim victory gave him another chance to fulfill his promises.

She said she wanted to bring the temperature down and bring unity by being more focused on delivering the policies she ran on.

The temperature on Capitol Hill was only rising for a short time. The revolt against the party leader was led by Boebert. McCarthy was given the gavel early Saturday.

Some of Boebert's toughest words are directed at fellow Republicans, including one who was a supporter of McCarthy.

I have been asked to explain why she showed up to the conference. Boebert said over the phone that she wouldn't go there before the speakership vote. She wants to say a lot of things and she seems to be crazy on social media.

Boebert insisted that she wasn't going to become a different person even after barely beating her opponent, who had targeted Boebert'sangertainment.

She said that a lot of those on the left wanted to know if she would tone it down. I'm going to be the same person.

Frisch said he has received encouragement from lawmakers in Washington to run again, and that the slim margin has stirred discussion about whether she might be vulnerable in another race next year.

She thinks about what it's like to be a member of the majority party.

She said that in the minority she only had her voice and could not do anything else. We need to show Americans that we are deserving of being in the majority.

The landscape of Boebert's district, which runs from the ruddy red mesas in Grand JUNCTION to the coal mining hamlets nestled in the Rockies, promotes a kind of frontier libertarianism. Boebert became a standard-bearer for a rural way of life that many voters felt was being lost.

Larry Clark, who has been tending to his family's 160-acre ranch for 50 years, points to one example. Many more liberal city-dwellers east of the Rockies voted to bring wolves back to the Western Slope.

Clark said that people don't understand what rural life is like. The wolves should be sent to Boulder.

Many of Boebert's supporters say she's served as an antidote to progressive Democrats, even if they have grown wary of her excesses.

Raleigh said Boebert was America's only chance against "endemic corruption" in Washington. She is likely going to have to learn to temper her approach, but don't change her goals.

Maryann Tonder said she doesn't want Boebert because she has to compromise principles to get things done. She said that you can do it in a way that's not too crazy.

Julie Ottman, a Boebert supporter in Rifle, said that sometimes you have to give a bit in order to get.

Boebert is being pressed to stand his ground.

The coal miner from the small town of Craig said he didn't want her to bow. I wouldn't support her anymore.

Is that true?
