Mark Ferrandino, of Denver, right, is greeted by Rep.-elect Dominck Moreno, of Commerce City, before the Colorado House of Representatives Democratic Caucus at the state Capitol in Denver, Thursday Nov. 8, 2012. Democrats, who took back the majority in the House after Tuesday's election, nominated Ferrandino as speaker of the House, the first time in Colorado history a gay lawmaker has presided over the chamber. They will have a 37-28 majority when the session opens in January. (AP Photo/The Denver Post, Craig F. Walker) MAGS OUT; TV OUT; INTERNET OUT
