Her statement in full:

“The past few days have been difficult and humbling, and I regret the unnecessary attention my Sunday evening in Denver brought to the community. While as a private citizen none of my actions or words that night were intended to harm. Or to cause harm, the truth is, they did, and I regret it.

There are no perfect blueprints for navigating a public and difficult divorce, and the past few months have created a challenging personal time for me and my entire family. I tried to handle it with as much strength and grace as I could, but I lost my values ​​on Sunday. That is unacceptable and I am sorry.

Whether it was the excitement of seeing the highly-anticipated production or the natural anxiety of being in a new environment, I couldn’t help but think of vaping that evening as I discussed the night’s events with my campaign team and confirmed my passion for the concert. Regardless of my belief, it is now clear that it is not accurate; It is not my or my campaign’s intention to mislead, but we understand how it feels. We know we have to work to earn back your trust, it may not happen overnight, but we will.

I would like to express my deepest gratitude to those in the 3rd District who have protected me and helped me this week, and who have offered me kindness and support when I needed it most. I’ve learned some humbling lessons these past few days, but I promise moving forward, I’ll make you guys proud.”

Bobert and a male companion attended a Broadway performance at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts that night. Bobert later posted on social media that he was “guilty” of laughing and singing too loudly.
