McInnis vows to stay in Colorado governor’s race
July 29, 2010
FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Scott McInnis says if he wins the Republican primary for governor, he’ll stay in the race despite calls that he bow out because of concerns that he can’t win in November.
The former congressman said in a campaign stop Wednesday in Fort Collins that if he’s nominated, he’ll be the party’s candidate in November.
Former GOP congressman Tom Tancredo says he’ll run for governor on the American Constitution Party ticket because he doesn’t believe McInnis or Dan Maes, the other GOP candidate, can defeat Democrat John Hickenlooper. Tancredo planned to make his candidacy official Friday.
McInnis and Maes have struggled with accusations of misbehavior – McInnis for allegedly plagiarizing essays he wrote for a foundation and Maes for campaign finance violations.
