“U.S. District Court Puts Congressman Doug Lamborn on Colorado Republican Primary Ballot”


On May 1, U.S. District Court Judge Philip Brimmer issued a 25-page order in Goodall v Williams, 1:18cv-980. The order enjoins the Secretary of State of Colorado from enforcing the state’s ban on out-of-state circulators for candidate petitions. It also puts Congressman Doug Lamborn, a Republican who is running for re-election, back on the Republican primary ballot. The Colorado Supreme Court had removed him last week because it had found that he used petitioners who were not Colorado residents. But the Colorado Supreme Court had said nothing about the constitutionality of the ban on out-of-state petitioners.
