Rep. Lauren Boebert announced she will not run in the special election to replace Rep. Ken Buck in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District.

Buck unexpectedly resigned, forcing a special election on the same day as the primary that would confuse voters and leave the district without representation for months.

“Ken Buck’s announcement yesterday was a gift to the uniparty. The establishment concocted a swampy backroom deal to try to rig an election I’m winning by 25 points,” Boebert said.

Boebert blamed “dark money” Democrats for trying to unseat her in her current district, and said resigning would further imperil the slim GOP House majority.

“I will not further imperil the already very slim House Republican majority by resigning my current seat and will continue to deliver on my constituents’ priorities while also working hard to earn the votes of the people of Colorado’s Fourth District who have made clear they are hungry for a real conservative,” Boebert said.

“I am the only Trump-endorsed, America First candidate in this race and will win the Fourth District’s primary election on June 25 and general election on November 5,” she added.

While she intends to win the district’s primary and general election, participating in the special election would require resigning prematurely.

Gov. Jared Polis set the special election date shortly after Buck’s announcement that he wants to work on electoral reform issues this cycle.

Buck said changing election laws and improving candidates is important, and resigning now allows him to get involved in addressing problems plaguing both parties.

Buck said, “Well, everywhere I go in Colorado, Dana, I hear that people are not happy with Trump and are not happy with Biden. I think we need to change our electoral laws here, and I have a passion for that. I’m going to leave, and I’m going to find the right organization to join. I’m going to start working on that issue. We have to have better candidates up and down the ballot, not just president, but Senate, House, local offices. We’ve got to find better ways to elect candidates and bring America together.”
