Bob Beauprez wins Colorado GOP primary for governor

DENVER — Former U.S. Rep. Bob Beauprez has won the Republican primary election for Colorado governor, besting three other candidates for the chance to challenge incumbent Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper.

Beauprez defeated another former congressman, Tom Tancredo, Secretary of State Scott Gessler and former state Sen. Mike Kopp on Tuesday's primary.

Beauprez served two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives and ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2006. The 65-year-old represented a suburban Denver district in Congress from 2003 to 2007.

Beauprez entered the GOP governor race in February. He described himself to primary voters as the best choice to defeat Hickenlooper, who has far outpaced all GOP challengers in fundraising.
