GOP nominee for governor Dan Maes told a conservative church crowd in Durango that there was “real evil” behind the allegations that have been made against him.
“I love that you opened with prayer because this is not just political war, folks, this is a spiritual battle,” he said. “There is evil out there. When I interact with some of these people, I can feel the evil. They’re not evil people, but evil finds its way into the system. And we must stand and fight this to the end.”
He also said he is in possession of an email that, if he chooses to make it public, will exonerate him of charges that he lied about his undercover police work.
Commenting on his troubles keeping on the right side of campaign finance laws, he referred to those laws as “ridiculous.”
