Republican Rep. Doug Lamborn of Colorado to Retire After Nine Terms

Rep. Doug Lamborn of Colorado said Friday that he will not seek reelection this year. He was reelected for his 9th term by a 16% margin in 2022.

Lamborn is the 38th current U.S. House member to announce they are retiring, resigning before the end of the term, or seeking another office.

As CBS News reports, "His retirement opens up all three Republican-controlled seats in the upcoming 2024 election. Rep. Ken Buck, who represents Colorado's 4th Congressional District (Douglas County, Eastern Plains, and northeast Colorado) announced his retirement from Congress in November 2023, and Rep. Lauren Boebert, who currently represents Colorado's 3rd Congressional District (Western Slope and southern Colorado) announced in late December that she will run for Buck's current seat in CD-4."

Lamborn's 5th congressional district is south of Denver, and includes the Colorado Springs area.
