(CNN)Republican Rep. Scott Tipton conceded his primary reelection bid in Colorado's 3rd Congressional District on Tuesday evening, a stunning upset that will vault his far-right challenger, Lauren Boebert, into the state's general election.

"3rd District Republicans have decided who they want to run against the Democrats this November," he said in a statement Tuesday evening.
"I want to congratulate Lauren Boebert and wish her and her supporters well."Tipton, a five-term incumbent who had been endorsed by President Donald Trump, was widely believed to be the front runner in the race before Tuesday evening.
    "Congressman @ScottRTipton is a great supporter of the #MAGA Agenda! He fights for your #2A rights and the Border Wall," the President tweeted on Monday. "Scott is working hard for Colorado and has my Complete and Total Endorsement! #CO03."But Boebert, a political newcomer, was able to gain meaningful support in the state as she positioned herself as a candidate more aligned with Trump's agenda. Her website states she "believes in personal freedom, citizen rights, and upholding the Constitution of the United States." Read More"There is a battle for the heart and soul of our country that I intend on helping win," Boebert says in a statement on her website. "I'm running for Congress to stand up for our conservative values, address our current representatives' failed promises, and put far-left Democrats back in their place." Her win Tuesday night was met with instant criticism from Democrats who pointed to comments she made where she appeared to sympathize with QAnon, a pro-Trump deep-state conspiracy theory. During an interview on the internet show "Steel Truth" in May, Boebert said she was "very familiar with" the conspiracy.QAnon, she said, "is only motivating and encouraging and bringing people together, stronger, and if this is real, then it could be really great for our country."The conspiracy incorporates everything from "Pizzagate" to "false flag" mass shootings to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It has claimed, for example, that Trump was not under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller but was instead working with him to go after leading Democrats and other elites, whom proponents of the theory allege are involved in pedophilia rings.It has been described as a "counter-narrative" to the actual reality of Trump's presidency.Cheri Bustos, chairwoman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said Tuesday evening "Washington Republicans should immediately disavow Lauren Boebert and her extremist, dangerous conspiracy theories."Bustos added that "Democrats are well positioned to compete and win this seat."
      Boebert's win also marks the latest instance of a Trump-endorsed candidate losing their GOP primary. Earlier this month Madison Cawthorn, a 24-year-old political newcomer, defeated Trump's endorsed candidate Lynda Bennett in the North Carolina GOP congressional primary for the seat vacated by the President's chief of staff, Mark Meadows.

      Hillary Clinton Warns We Have to be Ready for Trump Not to Go Quietly if He Loses

      Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined a growing chorus of alarm over the prospect of President Donald Trump’s potential resistance to a peaceful transition of power if he loses to former Vice President Joe Biden in November.

      On Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, host Trevor Noah brought up recent stories about mail-in voting irregularities that were caught, and which benefited Republicans, and asked “Is there a part of you that is worried that Donald Trump would be able to use any of those stories to try and undermine the entire election, and say ‘You see, there’s that one and that one, I don’t think we should trust this election at all because it says that I’ve lost.'”

      Clinton replied “Well, I think it is a fair point to raise as to whether or not, if he loses, he’s going to go quietly or not. And we have to be ready for that,” and added “But there have been so many academic studies and other analyses, which point out that it’s just an inaccurate, fraudulent claim.”

      “All of the games that are played and all of the photo IDs and any kind of restriction that can be imposed to try to keep the vote down in places that aren’t going to vote for Republicans, that’s the real danger to the integrity of our election,” Clinton continued. “That, combined with misinformation, with disinformation, and all of the online shenanigans that we saw in 2016. So I want a fair election.”

      “If people get to vote and they for whatever reason vote for Donald Trump, okay. We’ll accept it,” she said. “Not happily. But I don’t think that’s what will happen. Because I think that more people who can actually get to the polls whether by mail or in person and get their votes counted, then we are going to have the kind of election we should have and then it’ll be a win both in the popular vote and in the electoral college.”

      Biden recently addressed the idea that Trump would defy the results of the election, saying in an interview with Noah, “I promise you, I am absolutely convinced, they [military leaders and personnel] will escort him from the White House with great dispatch.”
