DENVER - Bob Beauprez is officially a candidate for governor after the Secretary of State confirmed Wednesday he has turned in enough signatures to get on the June primary ballot.

The Secretary of State threw out more than 12,000 signatures, and in things got close in two congressional districts.

In the 1st Congressional District only 1,524 signatures were valid and in the 5th Congressional District only 1,595.

Also petitioning onto the ballot is former Congressman Tom Tancredo who turned in 16,634 signatures, of which 3,476 were rejected. The closest he got to the 1,500 margin was 1,754 in the 2nd Congressional District.

Also on the ballot are former Senate Republican Leader Mike Kopp, from Golden, who took the top nomination spot at the Republican state assembly Saturday and Secretary of State Scott Gessler who came in a close second. Both candidates received more than the required 30 percent of the delegate vote.
