COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers is among the candidates to succeed ousted FBI Director James Comey.

White House officials said Friday the president was moving expeditiously to find an interim FBI director along with a permanent replacement for Comey, who was fired Tuesday.

President Donald Trump is considering nearly a dozen candidates. One of them is Suthers.

Suthers was elected mayor of Colorado Springs in 2015.

Before that, Suthers was state attorney general from 2005 until 2015.

Suthers has also served as executive director of the Colorado Department of Corrections and as U.S. attorney for the District of Colorado.
