Organizers of the Draft Scott McInnis for Governor campaign put a new website online Thursday. In a news release from the group, they are actively making a move to get the former congressman elected as the state’s chief executive next year.
In the news release, Natalie Meyer, chairperson of the draft movement, stated that the new website will be a terrific source of information about the campaign and why McInnis, who lives in Grand Junction and is working for a law firm in Denver, is the best choice to be Colorado’s next Governor.
Meyer started the draft movement in early March to build a statewide grassroots coalition of Coloradans from all
walks of life. According to Meyer, supporters include both Republicans and Democrats, and urban and rural citizens, who believe that McInnis’ combined state legislature and federal government experience make him a strong
candidate for Governor.
The former Colorado Secretary of State adds, "the statewide response has been amazing, with overwhelming enthusiasm and support from the people contacted. Truly grassroots in nature, friends began calling friends and the reputation of Scott McInnis did the rest.”
McInnis served in the the Colorado General Assembly before becoming the state's Third Congressional District Representive.
He chose not to run last year and John Salazar, (D) Manasa, beat challenger Gregg Walcher for the seat in November.
