Colorado Governor Candidate Scott McInnis says this year's gubernatorial election is all about jobs. To create them, he's promising to roll back Democratic Gov. Bill Ritter's state fees for individuals and to restore business tax exemptions.
But first the former U.S. representative must defeat Dan Maes in the Aug. 10 GOP primary. Maes edged McInnis at the GOP state assembly in May with the support of tea party activists wary of McInnis' Washington background.
McInnis, who served six terms in Congress, says he believes Colorado can work its way out of the recession by reducing government regulation and cutting state spending.
