Buck to retire next week, narrowing House GOP majority

Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) will retire from Congress next week, he announced on Tuesday, a move that will narrow the House GOP’s razor-thin majority even further.

Buck — who has become known for breaking from his party on a number of issues, especially the topic of election denialism — announced last year that he would depart the House at the end of his current term, but expedited that timeline on Tuesday.

“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,” he wrote in a statement.
