DENVER (AP) — Five-term Colorado U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton was upset in Tuesday’s Republican Party primary by Lauren Boebert, a pistol-packing businesswoman, ardent defender of gun rights and border wall supporter who wants to abolish the U.S. Department of Education.

Boebert won after a campaign in which she accused Tipton of not being sufficiently pro-Donald Trump even though the president had endorsed Tipton, and even though Tipton is the Trump campaign’s co-chair for Colorado.

Trump congratulated Boebert on Twitter, saying, “Congratulations on a really great win.”

She will run in November’s general election against Diane Mitsch Bush, who won the Democratic nomination on Tuesday by defeating James Iacino.

Tipton conceded in an email sent by his longtime campaign consultant Michael Fortney.

“(Third) District Republicans have decided who they want to run against the Democrats this November,” Tipton wrote. “I want to congratulate Lauren Boebert and wish her and her supporters well.”

Boebert made a name for herself after loudly protesting Democratic Gov. Jared Polis’ orders to close businesses to fight the coronavirus pandemic. She opened her Shooters Grill restaurant in defiance of closure orders.

Boebert confronted then-Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke during a stop last year by in the Denver suburb of Aurora, questioning him on suggestions he’d confiscate guns — a moment that landed her on Fox News.

“A sober look at the Tipton Record shows a back-burner representative that has failed to live up to his conservative chops that he touted on his Tea Party-inspired campaign trail,” Boebert wrote in a recent Aspen Times column. “If his record lived up to his campaign rhetoric, I wouldn’t feel so compelled to run.”

Earlier this year, Boebert said in an interview that she was “very familiar” with the QAnon far-right conspiracy theory, but she stopped short of saying she was a follower.

“Everything that I’ve heard of Q, I hope that this is real because it only means that America is getting stronger and better, and people are returning to conservative values,” she told interviewer Ann Vandersteel.

QAnon followers believe that Trump is fighting enemies in the “deep state” and a child sex trafficking ring run by satanic pedophiles and cannibals. The QAnon name comes from online clues purportedly posted by a high-ranking government official known as “Q.”

Report: Chris Jones, Chiefs resume long-term contract talks

Car attacks have become the far-rights new favorite weapon. Heres why. Tax Day deals are almost non-existent but National Fry Day brings free fries, deals Monday Report: Chris Jones, Chiefs resume long-term contract talks

With Broncos safety Justin Simmons and Buccaneers edge rusher Shaquil Barrett agreeing to sign their franchise tenders, Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones, Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green, and Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue are the only franchised players whose statuses remain uncertain.

As Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports, there may be some progress on the Jones front (video link). We recently heard that talks between Jones and the Chiefs had stalled and that Jones is prepared to hold out until he gets the contract he wants. But Fowler says player and team have finally resumed negotiations, which is a big deal in and of itself considering that there had been radio silence for months.

However, there is still plenty of work to be done. Though Jones has been reportedly aiming for a deal with an average annual value of about $20M, Fowler reports that KC will have to pony up “well over” the $20M figure if it wants to get an extension completed. As good as Jones is, it’s unclear if the two sides will be able to bridge the gap in advance of the July 15 deadline.

Unlike Jones and the Chiefs, Green and the Bengals have discussed an extension recently. It doesn’t sound as if those discussions have been particularly fruitful, however, as Fowler notes there is not much optimism regarding a multi-year contract

Green has indicated previously that he will not hold out if he does not get a long-term deal of his liking, and given the new CBA’s rules for players holding out after having signed a contract as a veteran, that makes sense. A Jones holdout would be much more likely, as Jones just finished his rookie contract and has not yet signed a pact as a veteran player.

Full screen 1/27 SLIDES © Kyle Terada / USA Today Images The most overpaid and underpaid player at every NFL position Contracts are an oft-debated topic in sports, and finding great values while avoiding bad contracts is especially important in the NFL due to the salary cap. These players have the "honor" of being the most under- and overpaid players at their respective positions in the league. Salaries are based on cap hits from Spotrac.com. 2/27 SLIDES © Tommy Gilligan / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid quarterback: Lamar Jackson, Ravens Jackson won the 2019 NFL MVP, but entering his third season the former first-round pick is a cap hit of just under $2.6 million for the Ravens. That's quite a bargain that has also allowed Baltimore to add key pieces in free agency. 3/27 SLIDES © Douglas DeFelice / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid quarterback: Jacoby Brissett, Colts Brissett signed a two-year, $30 million contract just after Andrew Luck retired last year, and he's set to be the 13th-highest-paid quarterback this year at over $21 million while Philip Rivers takes over the starting job. It seems unlikely that Brissett will get a comparable contract when he enters free agency next offseason. 4/27 SLIDES © Sam Greene / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid running back: Joe Mixon, Bengals Still working on his rookie contract in his fourth NFL season, Mixon is set to make just over $1.7 million in 2020. He's emerged as one of the most dynamic running backs in the game over the last two years, with consecutive 1,100 yard rushing seasons. Slideshow continues on the next slide 5/27 SLIDES © Mark Konezny / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid running back: Le'Veon Bell, Jets Bell finally got paid in free agency after holding out for all of 2018 in Pittsburgh and has the biggest cap hit at running back this year at nearly $15.5 million. That puts him over $4 million higher than the next closest back, and yet Bell had only 789 yards rushing and 3.2 yards per carry last season. 6/27 SLIDES © Geoff Burke / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid wide receiver: Terry McLaurin, Redskins McLaurin showed himself to be a budding star in his rookie season, with 919 yards receiving and seven touchdowns in 14 games for Washington. A former third-round pick, McLaurin's cap hit is still less than $1 million this year. 7/27 SLIDES © Kareem Elgazzar / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid wide receiver: A.J. Green, Bengals Green signed the franchise tag this year, making him the third-highest-paid wide receiver in the league with a cap hit of nearly $17.9 million. His past performance has earned that lofty salary, but Green has been unable to stay on the field recently, playing only nine games in 2018 and missing all of 2019. 8/27 SLIDES © Kelley L. Cox / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid tight end: George Kittle, 49ers It's only a matter of time before Kittle becomes one of the top-paid tight ends in the NFL, but for now he remains grossly underpaid. Entering his fourth season, Kittle has a cap hit of just over $2.2 million despite consecutive 1,000 yard receiving seasons. 9/27 SLIDES © Kim Klement / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid tight end: Cameron Brate, Buccaneers Finding consistent snaps has been a problem for Brate over the last two seasons with O.J. Howard in town, and now he will also have to compete with Rob Gronkowski in 2020. However, Brate still has the 18th-highest cap hit at tight end at $4.25 million. Slideshow continues on the next slide 10/27 SLIDES © Jeremy Brevard / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid offensive tackle: Dion Dawkins, Bills Through three NFL seasons, Dawkins has become one of the game's top left tackles. That's a status that should make him very rich soon, but still on his rookie contract his cap hit is only about $1.3 million this year. 11/27 SLIDES © Kim Klement / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid offensive tackle: Nate Solder, Giants Solder has struggled since becoming one of the highest-paid offensive linemen in the league when he signed with the Giants in 2018. Heading into his age-32 season, his cap hit remains the second-highest among all offensive linemen at $19.5 million. 12/27 SLIDES © Isaiah J. Downing / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid offensive guard: James Daniels, Bears Daniels has been an outstanding performer along the Bears offensive line in his first two NFL seasons. The former second-round pick will have a cap hit of just under $1.9 million this year. 13/27 SLIDES © John David Mercer / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid offensive guard: Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, Chiefs "The Doctor" has mostly been a solid performer during his NFL career, though he's played more than 14 games just once since he was drafted in 2014. His performance at right guard last season was somewhat inconsistent for the Super Bowl champs, yet he has the 14th-highest cap hit among all NFL guards this year at just less than $9 million. 14/27 SLIDES © Derick E. Hingle / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid center: Erik McCoy, Saints McCoy was a plug-and-play center for the Saints last year, immediately establishing himself as one of the best players in the NFL at the position. There's still plenty of time to go on his rookie contract, and the second-year player will make less than $1.4 million this year. Slideshow continues on the next slide 15/27 SLIDES © Joseph Maiorana / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid center: Trey Hopkins, Bengals Hopkins' play has been inconsistent with the full-time move to center, but he has the 15th-highest cap hit at the position, worth more than $5.5 million. The payday is far from elite, but his struggles last year still weren't worthy of such a high salary. 16/27 SLIDES © Kyle Terada / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid defensive end: Nick Bosa, 49ers Bosa was the second pick in the 2019 draft, going onto win Defensive Rookie of the Year and make the Pro Bowl with nine sacks. The 49ers are getting Bosa at a bargain price given the performance, as he's the 28th-highest-paid player at his position with a cap hit of over $7.6 million. 17/27 SLIDES © Brad Penner / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid defensive end: Leonard Williams, Giants Williams was franchised by the Giants and is set to make north of $16 million. He filed a grievance to be considered a defensive end, which would add $1.7 million more to his salary. Either way, it's a huge salary for a player who had just a half-sack in 15 games last season. 18/27 SLIDES © Joe Nicholson / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid defensive tackle: Vita Vea, Buccaneers Vea has been an elite early-down run-stuffer in two season since he was selected 12th overall in 2018. While he's not much of a pass rushing threat, the Bucs are still getting a bargain for the $4 million cap hit. 19/27 SLIDES © Orlando Ramirez / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid defensive tackle: Solomon Thomas, 49ers Thomas was the third overall pick in the 2017 draft, but he lost playing time last year and had his fifth-year option declined by the 49ers. Through three seasons, Thomas has only six sacks but is still set to make more than $9 million this year. 20/27 SLIDES © Mark J. Rebilas / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid outside linebacker: T.J. Watt, Steelers Watt has become one of the premier pass rushers in the league three seasons into his career, with consecutive Pro Bowl seasons and an All-Pro designation last year after recording 14.5 sacks and eight forced fumbles. Still on his rookie deal, Watt's cap hit is nearly $2.95 million in 2020. 21/27 SLIDES © Jason Getz / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid outside linebacker: Vic Beasley, Titans Beasley's career has been inconsistent in Atlanta, but the Titans apparently feel he's a fit for their defense, signing him to a one-year, $9.5 million contract this offseason. While Beasley led the league in sacks back in 2016, he's averaged only six per year since then. 22/27 SLIDES © Brian Spurlock / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid inside linebacker: Darius Leonard, Colts Leonard has been a tackling machine for the Colts in two seasons, accumulating 284 tackles along with 12 sacks. He was Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2018 and made his first Pro Bowl last season, yet his cap hit remains just below $2 million for 2020. 23/27 SLIDES © Jay Biggerstaff / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid inside linebacker: Anthony Hitchens, Chiefs Hitchens was a solid performer during the Chiefs Super Bowl season, recording 88 tackles and two sacks in 15 regular-season games. However, that performance wasn't enough to make him worthy as the fourth-highest-paid inside linebacker in the NFL in 2020, with a cap hit of nearly $12.7 million. 24/27 SLIDES © Joe Nicholson / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid cornerback: Shaquill Griffin, Seahawks Griffin has quickly become an elite cornerback, making the Pro Bowl in his third NFL season. The former third-round pick is another example of Seattle's great defensive drafting, and his cap hit is still only about $2.3 million this year. 25/27 SLIDES © Scott Galvin / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid cornerback: Malcolm Butler, Titans The Titans paid Butler in 2018 after four seasons in New England, and he has the seventh-highest cap hit of any corner at nearly $13.4 million in 2020. However, he played only nine regular-season games last season and struggled when he was on the field. 26/27 SLIDES © Derick E. Hingle / USA Today Sports Images Underpaid safety: Marcus Williams, Saints Williams has been an elite safety in three NFL seasons in New Orleans. He's set to get paid soon, but for now he will be a cap hit under $2 million in 2020. 27/27 SLIDES © Brett Davis / USA Today Sports Images Overpaid safety: Keanu Neal, Falcons Neal became a star early in his career, making the Pro Bowl in his second season in 2017. Since then he's play a total of four games in two years due to injuries. The Falcons hope for better health this year, especially since Neal has the 16th-highest cap hit among safeties at nearly $6.5 million. 27/27 SLIDES Continue Reading Show full articles without "Continue Reading" button for {0} hours.
