Only on 11 News--For the first time since announcing his run for governor, Grand Junction Republican Scott McInnis is talking about his plans.

Mcinnis spoke to the Western Colorado Association of Royalty Owners at a seminar in Parachute on Saturday.

He talked about the need for expanded natural gas production and told 11 News a main focus of his platform is job creation.

He says the Western Slope is often ignored but he thinks he has a good chance to be a voice for the region at the capitol.

"I think the chances are going to be very good. I think that this state is kind of stuck in park and I've got the capability to move it out of park and we're gonna put it in fast drive," McInnis told 11 News in an exclusive interview on Saturday.

McInnis will be up against atleast one other Republican in the primary next June--Evergreen businessman Dan Maes.

Senate Minority Leader and former aide to McInnis, Josh Penry, has told 11 News he is also considering a run but has not filed papers with the elections office.
