GOP Sen. White to join Hickenlooper administration

Another lawmaker is leaving the General Assembly to join Gov.-elect John Hickenlooper's administration.

This time, though, it's a Republican - Al White of Hayden.

According to a report by the Denver Post's Lynn Bartels, White will direct the state's Office of Tourism.

He will resign his seat, to which he was elected in 2008, and a Republican vacancy committee in his Senate district will choose a replacement.
