Primary Election: GOP voters face gubernatorial choice

Colorado's Republican voters have a tough -- and to some, dispiriting -- choice in Tuesday's gubernatorial primary.

Former U.S. Rep. Scott McInnis endured a plagiarism scandal in which he was paid $300,000 for issuing policy papers written by someone else. His opponent, businessman Dan Maes, cheated on campaign finance reports -- and has baffled many with such statements as saying he'd fire 2,000 state workers if elected.

The race has splintered Colorado's Republican Party -- and prompted former GOP congressman Tom Tancredo to run as the American Constitution Party candidate. Tancredo says neither McInnis nor Maes can beat Democrat John Hickenlooper, Denver's mayor, in November.
