(GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO) -- “Today the Secretary of State will certify the November ballot with Dan Maes as the Republican candidate for Governor. Five weeks ago I told Republicans that Mr. Maes was both professionally and personally unqualified to be their candidate. I gave them several opportunities to get him out, even offering them my candidacy as an inducement.
The time for inter-party squabbling is over. Now we must all move forward—for the sake of our state. Beginning today I will focus all my time and energy on winning this election.
Since Dan Maes is no longer a viable opponent today, I am challenging Mayor Hickenlooper to six one-on-one debates. My staff will gladly work with his as to the time, place, and format. I look forward to a healthy and vigorous campaign with my Democrat opponent that is in the interest of the voters of Colorado.”
