"Rep. Ken Buck (R) is considering a run for Colorado Republican Party chair in the party's upcoming reorganization, but doesn't intend to step down from his congressional seat. ... The three-term congressman and former Weld County district attorney, a member of the ultra-conservative House Freedom Caucus, has been discussing a potential bid for the party post in recent days but has yet to commit to a run, three Republicans familiar with Buck's deliberations confirm." He "envisions continuing to serve in Congress if he is elected state GOP chair at the end of March, according to Republicans who have discussed the possibility with Buck." (Colorado Politics)
