Maes says reports he’s leaving gubernatorial race are false

DENVER (AP) – GOP gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes says a round of automated phone calls telling registered Republicans he’s dropping out of the race and endorsing his GOP opponent are false.

Maes has notified Attorney General John Suthers of the fraudulent calls and is denouncing those behind them.

The fraudulent “robocalls” claim to be from “Maes campaign headquarters” and offer no indication who paid for them.

Maes and his primary opponent, Scott McInnis, have both been urged to pull out of the race by former GOP congressman Tom Tancredo, who switched to the American Constitution Party so he could run against Democratic candidate John Hickenlooper.
