DENVER (AP) — Colorado Treasurer Walker Stapleton says he will seek another term in office.

Stapleton, a Republican, made the announcement Thursday. He was first elected in 2010 when he unseated Democratic Treasurer Cary Kennedy.

He said in a statement Thursday that his mission has been to safely invest taxpayer money and focusing on finding efficiencies in government, not making headlines.

Stapleton is being challenged by Democrat Betsy Markey, a former congresswoman who represented Colorado’s 4th District.
