Colorado guv candidates agree on jobs, differ on oil industry regulation

DENVER—In their first appearance together, Colorado's three major gubernatorial candidates on Tuesday agreed that jobs and the economy are the dominant issues in this year’s election. Republicans Dan Maes and Scott McInnis championed the oil and gas industry in the state and decried regulation. Democrat John Hickenlooper said the ongoing British Petroleum oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico-- already the worst environmental catastrophe in U.S. history and as devastating to Gulf state industries as it may prove to be to BP-- demonstrated that smart regulation meant simply ensuring "best practices" for the oil and gas industry in the state.
