Colorado: Beauprez Won’t Seek GOP Senate Nomination
Colorado Republicans are still looking for a top-tier candidate to run for the Senate next year now that former Rep. Bob Beauprez has decided against entering the race to challenge Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet.
In a statement posted Monday on his website, Beauprez — who left his House seat to run unsuccessfully for governor against Democrat Bill Ritter Jr. in 2006 — expressed confidence that the GOP would find a strong conservative candidate. “I believe we will have a great nominee, and I believe we can and will win. It will take all of us pulling in the same direction, for the same reason,” he wrote.
