DescriptionU.S. Rep. Ken Buck was predicting that the 2020 election would be good for Colorado Republicans. He believed that President Donald Trump was poised to make a solid showing in the state and that U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner would win reelection.

That didn’t happen. Instead, the Colorado GOP fell further into the statehouse minority and now has only one statewide elected official — University of Colorado Regent Heidi Ganahl.

“We hoped to have Cory Gardner reelected and we hoped to win one or two seats — pick up a net gain of one or two — in the state Senate,” he said in an interview with The Colorado Sun on Thursday, his first since Election Day. “In that respect, I think it was disappointing.”

Buck, who in 2019 was elected Colorado Republican Party, is now facing pressure from within his party after another disappointing election cycle. But, contrary to a report that he won’t seek another two-year term at the GOP’s helm, Buck says he hasn’t made up his mind on whether to run for reelection to his leadership post.
