Buescher Appointment to be Considered in Senate Today

The Senate will decide today whether to confirm former Rep. Bernie Buescher, D-Grand Junction, today as secretary of state.

The vote is scheduled to get underway shortly after the Senate convenes at 9 am.

Buescher was appointed to replace Republican Mike Coffman, who had been elected secretary of state in 2006 but who successfully ran for Congress in 2008.
