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. Like the cat made famous by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger’s 1935 thought experiment in quantum mechanics, Colorado Springs Republican Shane Sandridge can be considered both alive and dead — in the political sense — until the Colorado GOP reveals how the party's executive committee ruled last week on a complaint challenging the vacancy election to fill former state Rep. Dan Nordberg's House District 14 seat.

Sandridge will replace state Rep. Dan Nordberg, R-Colorado Springs, who is stepping down in January to take a job as regional administrator of the Small Business Administration.
