DENVER (AP) - Secretary of State Bernie Buescher says he will certify the November ballot by the close of business Friday, despite an ongoing campaign by the Colorado Republican Party to recruit a new gubernatorial candidate.

Buescher says time is tight because of the late Aug. 10 primary and federal deadlines for overseas ballots.

County clerks have to print more than 3 million ballots by Sept. 18.

Republican Party officials have been pressuring GOP gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes to drop out of the race and let the party choose a new candidate after questions were raised about his character, including his work in law enforcement in Kansas.

Maes won the GOP nomination in August without the support of the party establishment and says he's not bowing out.
