Republicans sweep state offices

Posted

As was the trend in other races, Colorado voters chose Republican candidates to represent them in three state offices.

A look at the races, with results current as of 11 p.m. Nov. 4:

Attorney general

Republican Cynthia Coffman will replace John Suthers. She took 54 percent of the vote in a race against Democrat Don Quick (40 percent) and Libertarian David Williams (6 percent). Suthers is leaving the post to pursue the job of mayor of Colorado Springs.

Coffman has served as Suthers' chief deputy since 2005.

Secretary of state

Republican Wayne Williams won in his bid to replace fellow Republican Scott Gessler, who launched an unsuccessful bid for governor. Williams garnered 49.9 percent of the vote, while Democrat Joe Neguse received 42.9 percent, with two other candidates combining to take the remaining 7.2 percent.

Williams is the El Paso County clerk and recorder, a position he was elected to in 2010.

Treasurer

Incumbent Republican Walker Stapleton will keep his job.

He picked up 52 percent of the vote, compared to 43 percent for Democrat Betsy Markey and 5 percent for Libertarian David Jurist.

Stapleton was elected to his first term in 2010.
