Ken Buck Wins GOP Primary For Colorado’s 4th District
" DENVER (AP) – Republicans selected Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck on Tuesday to be their nominee for congress in a district representing the eastern third of the state, making it highly likely he will go to Washington, D.C., to replace Rep. Cory Gardner.

The race for Gardner’s seat, which the incumbent vacated to challenge Democratic Sen. Mark Udall, was one of three Republican congressional primaries Tuesday. The most competitive was in the Colorado Springs-centered 5th Congressional District, where Rep. Doug Lamborn was fewer than 3,000 votes ahead of his challenger, retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Bentley Rayburn, with 60 percent of precincts reporting.

The state’s three Democratic congressional representatives did not face primaries. Nor did Aurora Rep. Mike Coffman, the lone Republican who has a serious general election challenge, from former Colorado House speaker Andrew Romanoff.

Statewide turnout Tuesday was expected to be low. As of Monday, about 312,000 Republican voters had cast ballots. There are about 1.1 million registered Republicans in Colorado.

Buck had been running for U.S. Senate until Gardner entered that race. Buck then dropped out and ran for Gardner’s seat, becoming the prohibitive favorite. He had unsuccessfully run for U.S. Senate in 2010 "
