DENVER (AP) – Colorado GOP congressman Doug Lamborn is skipping President Barack Obama’s state of the union speech.

Lamborn said Monday he does not support the president’s policies and believes the president will use the speech to campaign for re-election.

Lamborn has attended past speeches by Obama. He said he is doing this because he wants to send a message to the president that he believes deficit spending cannot continue.
