Trump's Federal Reserve nominee 'from Colorado' lives in Utah

DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - Randal Quarles, President Donald Trump's pick to join the Federal Reserve's board of governors, was nominated as "Randal Quarles of Colorado" even though he lives in Utah.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Quarles hasn't lived full-time Colorado since he was in second grade. Born in San Francisco, he was raised in Utah before heading off to college.

Both of Salt Lake City's major newspapers called Quarles a Utahn when he was nominated for the Fed post. When he was picked for a Treasury Department position in 2002, he was identified as “Randal Quarles of Utah.”
