Unsuccessful Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff has landed a new job at an anti-poverty group that helps farmers in developing countries.
The Democrat tells The Denver Post that he'll work for Lakewood-based International Development Enterprises, where he'll travel frequently.
The former state House speaker turned down being considered for jobs with the Obama administration if he'd agree not to challenge Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet in a primary. Romanoff declined and lost to the rookie senator.
Since losing the primary, Romanoff has toured Colorado campaigning for his former rival and held fundraisers to retire his campaign debt.
