Lynda was a grassroots favorite.

Lynda was on fire!
More from Colorado Politics —
- Political newcomer and retired Air Force Lt. Col. Lynda Zamora Wilson is taking on the district’s incumbent and a GOP leader, Minority Whip Sen. Paul Lundeen, R-Monument.
- This is the first time Lundeen — who is a favorite to become Senate president if Republicans flip the chamber — has faced a primary challenge during his nearly eight-year career in the Colorado legislature. Lundeen ran unopposed in the Republican primaries for the 2014 and 2016 House elections, as well as in his most recent 2018 Senate election.
- Even more surprisingly, Wilson won more votes than Lundeen during the Colorado Republican Party’s state assembly on April 9. Though both candidates received more than 30% of the votes and, therefore, made it to the ballot, Wilson secured 52% compared to Lundeen’s 48%, the Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle reported.
- This victory came less than two weeks after Wilson entered the race, while standing at a significant fundraising disadvantage. As of Friday, her campaign raised just over $870 in contributions, while Lundeen’s campaign hauled in more than $73,000, according to data from the Secretary of State’s Office.
- The winner of this Republican primary will likely go on to win the general election, given the dominance of Republican voters in the district — though the GOP victor will still need to defeat Democratic candidate Arik Dougherty, who is running uncontested in his party’s primary, in November.

Then something very strange took place.
The election numbers were switched. Suddenly Lynda Zamora Wilson was behind in the race.
The machines flipped her lead to a loss.
The machines flipped the numbers back to the 8:15 totals — but Lundeen was now ahead!
Paul Lundeen was then miraculously declared the winner.
This was the same night that Tina Peters was robbed from her victory.
How much election fraud do they think the people will take?
