Former U.S. Congressman Scott McInnis told an Aspen newspaper Monday that he is still weighing a decision to join the 2006 gubernatorial race. McInnis told the Aspen Daily News he wants to watch what happens with the two leading Republican candidates before making a decision on running for the state's highest office, but he said he wouldn't rule out joining the race.
The governor's race is still 15 months off leaving the retired six–term representative for the Western Slope plenty of time to toss his hat in the political ring. Although U.S. Representative Bob Beauprez has not officially announced, he and former University of Denver President Marc Holtzmann and U.S. Representative Bob Beauprez are the front runners on the Republican ticket.
Denver District Attorney Bill Ritter is the only Democratic candidate after Rutt Bridges dropped out of the race earlier this month.
