Attorneys for Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colorado Springs), who the Colorado state Supreme Court struck from the ballot last week because of deficient signature petitions, will appear before a federal judge today attempting to reverse the decision on 1st Amendment grounds. The state Supreme Court ruled that the Congressman’s consulting firm had employed petition circulators who were not state residents, a violation of Colorado election law. Mr. Lamborn was first elected in 2006. State Sen. Owen Hill (R-Colorado Springs) and El Paso County Commissioner and former US Senate nominee Darryl Glenn are both qualified for the Republican primary ballot.
