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.
