MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- A Republican candidate for governor made his way to the Western Slope on Friday.
Doug Robinson was at the Club 20 event Friday night meeting and greeting people.
Robinson is the nephew of Mitt Romney, who ran against President Barack Obama in 2012.
Robinson tells us he sees the quality of life slowly getting worse in our state.
He said his first goal if elected governor is fixing the state's roads and education system.
"I think we need to focus more on STEM education and college is not the answer for everybody, we've had this college or nothing mantra but there are a lot of great jobs going unfilled because we aren't training our kids," he said.
Robinson will be doing a meet and greet at Main Street bagels in Grand Junction Saturday morning at 10.
