Friday evening, the Garfield County Health Department issued the suspension.

Boebert, a Republican running to unseat Republican Rep. Scott Tipton (CO-3), will have a virtual hearing about the suspension on Monday.

“If you want freedom, you have to go out and take it,” Boebert previously stated on social media.

Friday night, Boebert said Gov. Jared Polis’ orders are bankrupting small businesses.

    Governor Polis MUST hand over all of his own money to pay all of the small businesses he shut down. Pay up Polis – not a single penny is to be left in your stash.
