The Colorado Republican Party made it official Tuesday: Shane Sandridge, a Colorado Springs investment consultant and former police officer, won a vacancy election to fill the term of former state Rep. Dan Nordberg, the Colorado Springs Republican who announced last month he was stepping down to take a job as regional administrator of the Small Business Administration with the Trump administration.

Call him Schrödinger’s rep.

Dan Nordberg's House District 14 seat.
