RINO Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado has just announced his immediate resignation, further shrinking Republicans’ majority.

With the departure of Kevin McCarthy, Bill Johnson, and George Santos, along with Ken Buck’s retirement, Republicans will be left with a slim majority of 218-213.

Last November, Buck, a shameless RINO, announced that he would not seek reelection in 2024.

In a sudden announcement on Tuesday, Buck revealed his decision to retire from Congress by the end of next week.

This is an obvious effort to give control back to the Democrats in order to protect Joe Biden.

In Ken Buck’s statement he said, “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,” 

House Speaker Mike Johnson expressed his shock at Ken Buck’s abrupt decision.

“I was surprised by Ken’s announcement. I’m looking forward to talking with him about that,” Speaker Johnson told reporters on Tuesday.

Buck, who has served in Congress since 2015, attributed his decision to his frustrations with the current direction of the Republican Party. Specifically, he highlighted what he perceives as dishonesty among GOP leaders regarding the 2020 election and the events surrounding January 6th, 2021, at the Capitol.

“After careful consideration and much prayer, I have decided not to seek a 6th term in the US. House of Representatives,” said Buck. “To the people of Colorado’s Fourth Congressional District, thank you for sending me to Congress. I’m grateful for your support.”

“As we have fought against the left’s policies that have had real-world consequences: defunding the police, politicizing student loans, provoking inflation with excessive spending, creating open borders, decimating our domestic energy production. Americans are rightfully concerned about our nation’s future and are looking to Republicans in Washington for a course correction. But their hope for Republicans to take decisive action may be in vain. Our nation is on a collision course with reality and a steadfast commitment to truth,” he added.

Of course, right after making his announcement, Buck couldn’t wait to appear on CNN to talk about it:


According to Axios, more than 20 House Republicans have announced they will not seek reelection in 2024:

  • Alex Mooney (R-W.V.)
