Washington (CNN)The Colorado Supreme Court kicked Republican Rep. Doug Lamborn off the primary ballot Monday, throwing the six-term lawmaker’s political future into doubt.
The court ruled that a person who Lamborn had hired to circulate petitions to get on the ballot lived out of state, which invalidated the signatures that person had gathered and pushed Lamborn below the state’s 1,000-signature threshold to qualify for the ballot.
Jeebus, these people.
Anyway, this effectively means that Lamborn is off the primary ballot and probably some other Republican will win the nomination. So… effectively his seat is now open and contested.
