The sergeant in charge of complex crimes for the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office was chosen as the Republican nominee for sheriff on Monday, soon after telling party stalwarts he’d join the sheriffs who sued Gov. John Hickenlooper in a case questioning the constitutionality of new gun laws.
Matt Lewis, 39, and a 17-year veteran of the department, was elected by the party’s vacancy committee to fill in for state Sen. Steve King, who withdrew from the race last week.
The 13-member committee voted for Lewis after hearing from him and two other candidates, Robert Dalley and Mark McGarry. Lewis garnered nine votes, Dalley three and McGarry one. Committee members made no public comments about why they chose Lewis.
A convicted felon accused of running a red light in Grand Junction over the weekend and slamming into another vehicle, injuring the elderly driver of that vehicle, pointed a loaded handgun at a witness who was checking to see whether the suspect was injured, police say.
