GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO)- The GOP's candidate for governor made a stop in Grand Junction this afternoon in an effort to spread his message of job creation and prosperity.
Janet Rowland says after a lot of thought she thinks Scott McInnis is the man for governor, and she thinks McInnis will take responsibility for services that the state government has passed on to local governments when cutting the budget.
Scott McInnis said he is humbled to have the support of Western Slope leaders, including Rowland, other County Commissioners, and Fruita's Mayor, but he says having Senator Josh Penry behind him is vital.
He states that, "The fact that Josh Penry is out of the race is huge. Josh Penry is a super star and he's clearly going to be the leader of the state."
McInnis also says Ritter dropping out of the race hasn't really phased his campaign. McInnis said, "The fact that Ritter went out doesn't make any difference to us. Our message stays the same."
McInnis' platform is job creation and says it has been from day one.
