Maes Loses In Colorado

KSCB News - November 3, 2010 12:00 am

Defeated Republican candidate for Governor Dan Maes says he has no regrets about staying in the race until the very end.

Maes says despite the pressure to get out of the race, including from the Republican Party before primary ballots were even done being counted, he’s glad he stuck it out.

Maes said he stuck out the race because he owed it to the people who voted to put him on the ballot in the first place, “I stuck through it because I believed in my commitment to the Republican people who got me here.”

Maes said he has no regrets about sticking through the race, despite the fact that among others, even his own party asked him to get out, “it was very very challenging, there were days where they almost got me, you know? and that’s when you go home to a spouse that lifts you up and encourages you, and say, ‘don’t lose focus, stay on course’, it was very difficult.”

When asked if he was disappointed in the GOP for turning on him, he said it was also tough, considering he’d done so much to get on the ballot, “and you win everything, and you do everything right and they don’t step up, that’s extremely disappointing.”
