DENVER — Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes today told the Colorado Independent he’s staying in the race despite increasing pressure from the Colorado Republican Party to get out by Friday so a replacement candidate can be listed on November’s ballot.
“People are sick and tired of the machine,” Maes said. “We aren’t going anywhere.”
Maes made his comment ahead of a public television debate in downtown Denver with Democratic nominee and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper and American Constitution Party candidate Tom Tancredo.
The debate will air on Channel 12 Friday night at 9.
