DENVER (AP) - Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is endorsing Bob Beauprez as the Republican best-qualified to become Colorado's next governor.
Romney issued his endorsement Tuesday.
Beauprez is a former Congressman and one of four Republicans competing for the party's nomination to challenge Democrat John Hickenlooper in November.
Romney said that, as a former governor, he thought Beauprez was best for the job. Beauprez is running against former Rep. Tom Tancredo, Secretary of State Scott Gessler and former State Senator Mike Kopp.
