Is the End Near for This Longtime GOP Rep?

Rep. Doug Lamborn is making his final stand Monday to keep his name on the ballot this November after the Colorado Supreme Court removed it last week over a technicality.

Lamborn, who has represented Colorado’s 5th District for more than 11 years, will appear in federal court Monday after filing a lawsuit against the Colorado secretary of state claiming that the rule that caused officials to boot him from the ballot is unconstitutional.

Lamborn is set to appear in court at 9 a.m. local time at the Alfred A. Arraj United States Courthouse in Denver.

The state supreme court threw out 841 of the 1,783 signatures two contractors had collected for Lamborn because the signature-gatherers were not Colorado residents, a state law requirement.
