DENVER (AP) The Republican National Committee is pouring new resources into Colorado.

Party officials say they will hire 14 more staffers and open a dozen field offices in the Centennial State. The investment comes after Republicans snagged a top-tier recruit to challenge Sen. Mark Udall and another prominent Republican stepped into the race against Gov. John Hickenlooper.

Colorado and national politics were shaken up by Rep. Cory Gardner's surprise entrance into the Republican primary against Udall last month. Former Rep. Bob Beauprez announced his entry into the party's gubernatorial primary last week.

Republicans have not won a top-of-the-ticket race in Colorado in a decade. The state has become an example of how the party has alienated swing voters, young people and Hispanics. The party hopes to change that in 2014.
