Rep. Ken Buck To Retire Sooner Than Expected

Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) has decided to fast-track his retirement to next week, further whittling down the GOP majority in the House of Representatives. Buck had previously announced that he would retire in January upon the completion of his current term.

A conservative congressman, Buck grew increasingly disillusioned with the Republican Party’s election denialism following former President Trump’s 2020 loss to Joe Biden.

“It has been an honor to serve the people of Colorado‘s 4th District in Congress for the past 9 years. I want to thank them for their support and encouragement throughout the years. Today, I am announcing that I will depart Congress at the end of next week. I look forward to staying involved in our political process, as well as spending more time in Colorado with my family,” Buck wrote in a statement.

Prior to running for the U.S. House, Buck was the chairman of the Colorado Republican Party. In 2010, he ran an unsuccessful campaign to unseat U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.)
