Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper will pick CSU-Pueblo President Joe Garcia as his running mate.
Three sources who were involved in the decision-making confirmed the pick to The Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak on Hickenlooper's behalf.
Hickenlooper isn't facing any opposition in the primary election that wraps up next Tuesday but it's still unusual for a candidate to pick a running mate before then.
Republicans Dan Maes and Scott McInnis are still fighting it out for the Republican nomination. Former Republican congressman Tom Tancredo has also jumped into the race, running as the American Constitution Party candidate.
