Colorado Democratic Rep. Ed Perlmutter Won't Run for Reelection

Rep. Ed Perlmutter of Colorado announced Monday that he won't run for reelection this year. He is the 26th Democrat - out of 37 total House members - to announce they are retiring or seeking another office.

Perlmutter represents Colorado's 7th district. This has been a solidly Democratic district, covering the northern and western sections of the Denver area. Joe Biden won here by a 23% points in 2020. With redistricting, the 7th shifts west and south, becoming much larger geographically as it incorporates more sparsely populated mountain counties.

In the new configuration, Biden would have had a 15% winning margin. While Democrats start out favored to hold the seat, it could potentially be in play with these new boundaries and no incumbent on the ballot.
