Colorado Republican Ryan Frazier is ending his long-planned bid for a Senate seat and instead will challenge Rep. Ed Perlmutter in the state’s 7th District.

Frazier, who is a city councilman in Aurora, made the announcement Thursday in Brighton, a Denver suburb in the district in which Perlmutter is serving his second term.

“It’s time to re-energize the people’s House with new leadership and better solutions,” Frazier said in a statement his campaign released. “The 7th Congressional District represents the right path, right now to do my part in helping make America better.”
