Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) has served Colorado’s 5th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2007. He won his ninth term in 2022 in his solidly Republican district. In its endorsement, the conservative Gazette in Colorado Springs applauded the incumbent as “a dependable opponent of revolutionary left-wing agendas” and added: “He proudly puts ‘America first.’ He opposes the racially divisive teaching of critical race theory, by any name, in K–2 public schools. He crusades against vaccination mandates for civilians and military personnel.”
Prior to joining Congress, Lamborn was a member of the Colorado Senate from 1999–2007 and a member of the Colorado House of Representatives from 1995–99. In the private sector, he was an attorney with a focus on business and real estate law.
After the 2020 presidential election, Lamborn adhered to the GOP playbook by casting doubt on the legitimacy of the voting process. He objected to certifying Biden’s Electoral College win and voted against both impeaching Trump for inciting the mob and establishing a special House committee to investigate the insurrection, among other measures.
In 2021, a former Lamborn staffer filed a complaint against the congressman alleging various strange and unethical practices, including letting his son live in a storage area in the Capitol building, asking federal employees to do errands for his wife and help his son with a job application, and pressing for staffers to give him and his wife Christmas presents.
January 6, 2021
- Just hours after pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol, Lamborn and 146 other congressional Republicans objected to certifying Biden’s win of the 2020 presidential election.
- In voting against impeaching Trump for his role in instigating the attack on Congress and the Capitol, Lamborn released a statement that read: “In the Democrats’ hasty desire to impeach the President, they are willing to trample the Constitution and our political institutions.”
- Lamborn voted against establishing a House committee to investigate what led to the violent assault on the Capitol and disruption of the congressional procedure underway that day.
- In January 2022, Lamborn said that rioters who attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 but did not “break the law” should be “thanked” rather than vilified by Democrats.
- On the one-year anniversary of the insurrection, Lamborn tweeted: “Comparing Jan. 6 to Pearl Harbor & 9/11 is repugnant & totally non-comparable.”
The Big Lie
- On Dec. 10, 2020, Lamborn signed an amicus brief in a lawsuit filed by the state of Texas urging the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the results of the presidential election in four swing states: Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
- In justifying his vote not to certify the 2020 Electoral College results, Lamborn said, “Congress must closely and thoroughly examine the allegations of voter fraud and take appropriate steps to restore trust in the election process.”
