What’s the deal with Colorado Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis skipping out on this month’s state party candidate forum and straw poll? And then making a big deal out of it? Apparently, the strange interviews weren’t enough.
The candidate touting broader polls he commissioned showing his own name recognition advantage won’t stand next to Josh Penry (whom I support) and Dan Maes (whom I respect) to gauge the support of the party faithful. Who does he hope is going to elect him? In search of satisfactory answers, read Westword’s account of an interview with McInnis campaign spokesman Sean Duffy.
If the trajectory of this race continues to any extent in the direction it’s going, it’s not a long matter of time before Josh Penry is the frontrunner and the heir apparent to take on a politically vulnerable Bill Ritter.
