Three fellow Republicans — Andrew Heaton, Rebecca Keltie and Dave Williams — are running against Republican U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, the incumbent first elected in 2006. Two Democrats — Michael C Colombe and David Torres — are seeking their party’s nomination.

Incumbent U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, a Democrat, is retiring after the current term, his eighth since the attorney and former state lawmaker was first elected in 2006. It isn’t the swingiest district in the state — that would be the new 8th Congressional District on the North Front Range — but as a rare open seat, it has drawn heavy spending from both sides and could be a toss-up in this year’s midterms. Republican candidates Erik Aadland, Laurel Imer and Tim Reichert are up against each other in the competitive Republican primary.
