Beauprez names Douglas commissioner running mate
Douglas County Commissioner Jill Repella has been named running mate to Republican gubernatorial nominee Bob Beauprez.
The Beauprez campaign announced his lieutenant governor pick on Tuesday.
The Denver Post reports that Repella was first elected to the three-member commission in 2008 and re-elected in 2012. Term limits prevent her from seeing re-election.
Repella has worked for more than 12 years in commercial space planning and architecture. She has degrees from the University of Denver and Colorado State University. Repella also attended the University of Colorado at Denver.
Tuesday was the statutory deadline one week after Beauprez's nomination.
