House Rules Committee members Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., and Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., right, work on the markup of the resolution that formalized the next steps in the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2019.

Longtime Democratic Congressman Ed Perlmutter represents Denver’s northern suburbs and he announced this week he won’t seek re-election, something different from what he told us the last time he was on Colorado Matters in November. Host Ryan Warner asks him both about his departure and policy.
