Colorado General Assembly chooses leaders for each party, each house | Colorado Springs Gazette, News…89915

“DENVER – Democrats elected the state’s first Latina speaker of the house Thursday, choosing Crisanta Duran of Denver, as the parties selected their chamber leaders for the next two sessions of the Colorado General Assembly.
House Republicans chose Patrick Neville of Castle Rock, one of the Capitol’s strongest conservatives, to lead their caucus. The move was a surprise, as Rep. Polly Lawrence from Roxborough Park was thought to be a front-runner. Lawrence requested not to be nominated.”
