Newly elected Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., said she will object to Electoral College results certification on Jan. 6.

That’s the day the Electoral College results will be counted officially in a joint session of Congress.

"Guided by the US Constitution and my responsibility to my constituents, I will object to the Electoral College results on January 6th," wrote Boebert in a Twitter post Thursday per The Epoch Times.

After being accused on Twitter of taking a stance solely to make news and further her career, Boebert replied: "Newsflash: I'm not here to make a career for myself. I'm here to save our country from socialists.

Earlier this month, Boebert told The Epoch Times she supported the president’s legal efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

"This is a contested election," she said, "and I believe that President Trump should fight with everything that he has and use all of the authority that he has as the President of the United States to make sure that we have a free and fair election. We need to be looking into these allegations; we need to be taking them seriously."

Boebert has been a huge supporter of Second Amendment rights and has said she’ll fight efforts by House Democrats to ban lawmakers from carrying guns at the Capitol.

"The Democrats are always up for stripping away our constitutional rights and feel threatened when we simply want to exercise those rights," Boebert told Fox News.

"I carry a firearm to protect myself and want to exercise my right to do so in one of the most dangerous cities in America. They want to take that right away from me. I look forward to helping make sure they can't."
