Boebert blames Hollywood stars for having to switch districts
The Colorado Republican told Steve Bannon on his “War Room” podcast over the weekend that “we have to shut down the Hollywood elites who are trying to buy my current district.”
She accused Hollywood actors of trying to buy her district by supporting Adam Frisch, the Democrat running against her. According to the Federal Election Commission, Ms. Streisand donated $1,000 to Mr. Frisch and Mr. Reynolds donated $500.
Ms. Boebert announced last week that she is switching from the 3rd District seat that she holds to the 4th District, a more solidly red part of the state. That seat is held by Rep. Ken Buck, a Republican, but he announced last year that he would not be seeking reelection.
“When you have Barbra Streisand coming in and donating to the Democrat, when you have Ryan Reynolds coming in and donating to the Democrat, it shows you that Hollywood is trying to buy their way into Congress,” she said.
She has previously said Mr. Frisch has used “dark money” to take the seat.
