Bob Beauprez (born September 22, 1948) is an American politician who has been a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives since 2003, representing the 7th Congressional District of Colorado (map). The seventh district was newly created by redistricting, which added an extra seat to Colorado. Beauprez narrowly won by 121 votes. In the House, Beauprez serves on the Ways and Means Committee.
After he, his father, and his brother retired in 1990 from the family cattle farm, Beauprez bought into a local bank, which has since expanded from one location to a dozen. Beauprez then set about developing the farm. Beauprez ran unopposed to become Chairman of the Colorado Republican Party from 1999 to 2002.
Beauprez is a conservative Republican candidate in Colorado's 2006 gubernatorial race, and has been endorsed in the Republican primary by sitting governor Bill Owens. His chief primary opponent is Marc Holtzman.
Beauprez is allegedly coordinating a lawsuit filed by lobbyist Steve Durham aimed at Holtzman. On May 3 2006, a series of negative radio commercials attacking Holtzman on Beauprez's behalf were launched by Coloradans for Freedom and Opportunity, a 527 group launched by Katy Atkinson, the spokeswoman of the "Yes on Referendum C" campaign.
Beauprez was a recipient of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's ARMPAC campaign contributions. Beauprez was associated to Delay, who is being prosecuted on charges of felony money laundering of campaign finances and conspiracy to launder money.
