DENVER (AP) — Colorado House Republicans selected Loveland Rep. Brian DelGrosso as their new leader after Colorado Springs Rep. Mark Waller stepped down from his leadership post to run for state attorney general.

Republicans unanimously voted Thursday to select DelGrosso. He has served in the finance and appropriations committees of the legislature and is one of the most highly-regarded members of the GOP caucus.

He’s also a business owner and runs three Domino’s Pizza franchises. DelGrosso told his colleagues he was humbled by their vote.

Waller announced his candidacy for attorney general last week. He joins a field that includes former Adams County District Attorney Don Quick, a Democrat, and Republican Cynthia Coffman, the chief deputy for current Attorney General John Suthers.

Suthers is term-limited. The election for his position is November 2014.
