Water analysts refute Maes’ claim: ‘If it starts in Colorado, it’s...

If elected governor in November, Republican Dan Maes said that he might be inclined to turn his back on a century of water law. He told the Colorado Water Congress Saturday, speaking of water rights, “If it starts in Colorado, it’s our water.”

McInnis blasts Hickenlooper as provincial and inexperienced

CASTLE ROCK-- Speaking to a small group of shopping center executives today, gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis said he was more prepared and more qualified to be governor than Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper. “He’s never been involved in the process of governing the state. He’s never been involved in one state budget meeting. He has no experience with highway budgets or education budgets. Some people say they want a new face, well this is no time for a new face."

Bob Schaffer will have the chance tomorrow to further distance himself from John McCain's disastrous suggestion to "renegotiate" the Colorado River Compact when he joins Mark Udall at the Colorado Water Congress Summer Convention in Vail. The two Senate candidates are scheduled to address water policy and take questions from water movers and shakers at 11 a.m. at the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort.

Renegotiate the Colorado River Compact? McCain says ‘never mind’

So apparently that part about how John McCain called for a renegotiation of the Colorado River Compact — or as he put it, “the compact that is in effect, obviously, needs to be renegotiated over time amongst the interested parties ...” Well, turns out those words were "mistakenly construed." Nah, the Republican presidential candidate doesn’t really want to alienate Colorado voters with such a radical proposition. No, instead McCain wants us to move along. As if, there's nothing to see here, folks.
