Allard Will Not Run for Re-Election

Colorado Confidential first reported in November that Republican Sen. Wayne Allard was not expected to run for re-election in 2008, and today the Loveland Republican made it official. As the Rocky Mountain News reports:

Sen. Wayne Allard said today he will honor his term-limits pledge and leave at the end of 2008, creating a replacement fight that should turn Colorado into one of the country’s biggest electoral battlegrounds.

“I just didn’t think I could back away from the (term limits) commitment. It is a matter of integrity and keeping your commitments. I have never wavered on that,” Allard told the Rocky Mountain News.
