A five-term Republican congressman endorsed by President Donald Trump has conceded defeat in Colorado to a political novice and admirer of the QAnon conspiracy theory movement.

On Tuesday evening Lauren Boebert defeated Rep. Scott Tipton in Colorado's Third Congressional District. It is a seat he has held since 2011. Tipton had been strongly tipped to win re-election after Trump tweeted his support for the 63-year-old on Monday.

Boebert achieved her stunning victory by attacking Tipton's lack of conservative credentials, and went after him for being too cozy with Democrats in the House. She aligned herself with Trump's agenda, pointing out her opponent's failure to stand up to left-wing members of the U.S. House, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
