Born in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1954, Doug had service-before-self instilled in him at an early age by his father, a World War II combat veteran and a corrections officer at the Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary.

After meeting his wife Jeanie, Doug graduated from the University of Kansas with a Journalism Degree (as a National Merit Scholar). As they began to raise their five children, Doug worked hard to put himself through law school, earning a law degree from the University of Kansas before moving his family to Colorado Springs, Colorado to practice business and real estate law.

It was in Colorado that Doug was called to public office and served in the Colorado General Assembly from 1995 to 2006, in both the State House and State Senate. During his time in the Colorado Legislature, Doug was elected Senate President Pro-Tem, served as Chairman of the Senate State Military and Veterans Affairs Committee, Chairman of the Senate Republican Caucus, and House Majority Whip.

Doug was the lead sponsor of the largest tax cut in Colorado history. Doug also introduced legislation creating a license plate honoring Bronze Star recipients, exempting active duty soldiers from paying state income taxes, allowing public school students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, eliminating and reducing state services to illegal immigrants, banning late-term abortions, implementing DNA testing of convicted felons, eliminating sales tax on telephone service, eliminating the business personal property tax for thousands of businesses, and repealing expired and outdated laws. Many of these efforts successfully became law. While serving in the part-time Colorado General Assembly, Doug continued to practice law and raise a family.

Doug was then elected to the US House of Representatives in 2006 to represent Colorado’s Fifth District. Colorado’s Fifth District, based in Colorado Springs, is one of our nation’s most military-intensive congressional districts and the home to more than 100,000 veterans who have served our country with distinction and honor. Because of the district’s military and veteran concentration, Doug serves as a high-ranking member on the House Armed Services Committee, and a former member for ten years of the Veterans Affairs Committee. In these roles he has protected important national defense funding, programs and missions, and has fought hard for the right of veterans to receive the healthcare they have earned. Additionally, the Congressman has worked since his first day in office to bring about a dignified and fitting National Veterans Cemetery to the Pikes Peak Region, which is now completed.

Additionally, Doug currently serves as the Ranking Member of the Readiness Subcommittee of the House Armed Services Committee. The Readiness Subcommittee is responsible for the single largest account with DOD’s budget. It oversees military readiness, training, logistics, and maintenance issues and programs, military construction, installations, and family housing issues. The subcommittee makes sure that our troops and their loved ones are receiving the first class benefits that they deserve. Doug also serves on the Tactical Air and Land Forces subcommittee which has jurisdiction over Army programs and accounts, Marine Corps programs and accounts, Air Force programs and accounts, Navy programs and accounts, and National Guard and Reserve equipment programs and accounts.

Doug also serves on the House Natural Resources Committee and its subcommittee on Water, Oceans, and Wildlife and the Energy and Mineral Resources subcommittee. The Water Oceans and Wildlife subcommittee has jurisdiction over the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, costal and fishery programs, and the Bureau of Reclamation. The Energy and Mineral Resources subcommittee oversees public resources on public lands including offshore energy development.

Throughout his time in public service, Doug has been a leader on pro-family and small business issues, a strong advocate for our veterans and our military, and a supporter of lower taxes, immigration reform, less government spending, and protection of the Second Amendment.

Doug is married to Jeanie, his wife of 44 years and an accomplished artist and former teacher at the Bemis School of Art in Colorado Springs. The Lamborn’s have also raised five extremely successful children. Their four sons were Eagle Scouts and, among them, have served as a doctor, in the military, as an attorney, and as a member of the film industry in Los Angeles. Their daughter was an accomplished Division I track and field athlete and an advanced degree in creative non-fiction. Three of their children are married and among them they have six grandchildren.
