As a member of the Freedom Caucus, which is a conservative group, she has made a name for herself by hurling broadsides at various progressives, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez of New York. During her time in the House, she also made headlines when she confronted Joe Biden during his State of Union address.
According to FiveThirtyEight, her district in Colorado was expected to have a double-digit lead for Republicans. In the midterm elections, she was only able to hold on to her seat with a narrow margin of victory over Democrat Adam Frisch. She eventually won by 50.06%.
In her victory speech, she thanked her supporters and said she would take on the responsibility of representing them in the House. She also said she would work hard to make sure that the policies that she and the Republicans support are implemented in the country. In her video statement, she also talked about her journey and how she would continue to stand up for her conservative principles.
She also talked about her efforts to put the country back on track and said she would work to stop the "hard left" from moving toward socialism. When asked about supporting Kevin McCarthy for the speakership, she refrained from ruling out that possibility.
Due to the number of Republican defections, McCarthy is facing a rocky road to becoming the next speaker of the House. With the House's slim majority, he can only afford to lose a few members, and the GOP does not have an alternative.
