The expected nomination of Democratic U.S. Senator Ken Salazar to President-Elect Barack Obama's cabinet could set off a series of political dominoes in Colorado.
An official familiar with the selection of Obama's cabinet said that Obama has chosen Ken Salazar as Interior Secretary. The official spoke on condition of anonymity, saying they weren't authorized to disclose any personnel decisions not yet announced.
Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, Representative John Salazar, and House Speaker Andrew Romanoff are considered possible replacements for Ken Salazar's senate seat.
Whoever is appointed to fill the seat would serve until the next general election in 2010, then would be required to stand for election if he or she still wanted the job.
