President Joe Biden on Tuesday nominated Cole Finegan, a former Denver city attorney who once served under Democratic governors John Hickenlooper and Roy Romer, to be the next US attorney for the District of Colorado.

Finegan, who is currently a managing partner at Hogan Lovells Law Firm in Denver, beat out two other finalists — Denver City Attorney Kristin Bronson and a federal prosecutor, Hetal Doshi — for the area’s top federal law enforcement position.

“I am honored that President Biden has nominated me and I look forward to the confirmation process,” Finegan told the Denver Post in an email.

In a statement announcing eight other nominations for US attorney positions nationwide, the White House said confirming these prosecutors would be critical to addressing the increase in gun violence over the past 18 months.
