GOP congressman Ken Buck leaving Congress

Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) stated Wednesday that he will not be running for reelection in 2024, speaking out over his concerns about his concern over the MAGA focus on 2020 election results and the events of Jan. 6, 2021.

Buck shared the decision on CNN's "The Source" with Kaitlan Collins.

Blasting his own party

"We continue to talk about and lie about the 2020 election as if it was stolen, as if Joe Biden wasn’t the real winner of that election. We keep lying about January 6 and the prisoners from January 6, the defendants who are not political prisoners but rather committed crimes," Buck said.

"They assaulted police officers. They damaged government property. So I don’t think we can have the credibility we need with the American public if we continue the lies that we’re now telling," he added.

Criticizing the new speaker

Buck also sounded off against the new Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA).

“Mike went to the Supreme Court with a challenge to the election. I think going to the courts is one thing," Buck stated.

"Trying to move the mob from the Mall up to the House floor and, you know, interrupting the congressional proceeding — whole different issue,” he continued.

Taking to social media

"Earlier today I announced that I won't be seeking re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives," Buck posted to social media along with a video explaining his decision.

"To my friends in Colorado, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve our nation. Being your representative in Washington DC has been the highest honor of my life," he stated.

Buck joins longtime Texas Republican Rep. Kay Granger who also announced her plans this week to retire from Congress. Unlike Buck, Granger has long been known for her strong conservative values.

The decision has been made, with many conservatives rejoicing, over Buck's announcement, hoping that a more faithful Republican can win in 2024 in the congressman's Colorado district.
