Rep. Doug Lamborn running for 3rd term

Republican Rep. Doug Lamborn announced Tuesday that he's running for a third term in Congress.

Lamborn is a member of the Armed Services Committee, the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, and holds other posts.

He released this statement:

"As a Constitutional conservative, I believe we must return to the principles upon which our nation was founded. Our only hope, if we want America to keep her premier position in the world, is to return to limited government, spending within our means, and personal responsibility and freedom.

"Those in power in Washington today spend too much, tax too much, and borrow too much. This financial irresponsibility threatens our fiscal health and future as a nation.

"Only when our country's leaders realize that government does not create wealth, but that prosperity comes from the hard work of the American people, can we once again create real jobs.

"The National Journal ranked me as the most conservative member of Congress, with a handful of others, for my voting record on key social and economic issues in 2009. I pledge to continue standing up for conservative values if reelected to Congress for another term."-
