DENVER– This morning, Senator Bob Rankin (R – Carbondale) announced his resignation from the Colorado State Senate, effective January 10th.

Senator Rankin was appointed to serve in the State Senate in 2019 and reelected in 2020, having first been elected to the State House in 2012. Since 2015, Rankin served on the Joint Budget Committee.

“We are all incredibly grateful for Senator Rankin’s service to this state,” Minority Leader Cooke remarked. “His grit, integrity, and honesty is something every member of the General Assembly can aspire to.

We wish Bob all the best in the next chapter of his life.”
