Dan Maes breaks silence

By Charles Ashby

Dan Maes, the GOP candidate for governor who only garnered 11 percent of the vote last year, sent out an email blast today to people once on his supporter list to talk about former Colorado Republican Party Chairman Dick Wadhams and his conversations with him.

Maes started out facing several GOP candidates for governor, including former state Sen. Josh Penry, R-Grand Junction, and former 3rd Congressional District congressman Scott McInnis. Penry ended up dropping out of the race and a few months before the August 2010 primary, McInnis' campaign was rocked by a plagiarism scandal, leaving Maes as the sole candidate.

Former congressman Tom Tancredo, a Republican who once represented the 6th Congressional Districts, didn't care for that. He briefly quit the Republican Party and became the gubernatorial candidate for the American Constitution Party. He later called on Maes to drop out, offering to do so too so the Republican Party could find what Tancredo called a more viable candidate. Maes refused.

As a result, Maes and Tancredo split the vote and Democrat John Hickenlooper became governor, even though the former Denver mayor still got 51.1 percent of the vote.

In his long message for former supporters, Maes says this:

The last important exchange that must be corrected was that of just days before the ballot certification via phone. Dick has publicly said that he had TT willing to get out if I would. Dick called me to say that a deal was available. I remained totally confused as to why this was happening but must admit that the constant pounding over that 24 hour period was wearing on me. The proposal was this. I had to write a letter stating I was stepping aside, as a man of honor, and I was to give Dick that letter. Then TT would do the same AFTER I did. Now my friends, I was born at night but, well , you know. I then said here is what I would consider. TT would first right his letter, give it to Dick, call me personally and tell me he was getting out, and then I would consider doing the same. You see, I knew that would never happen. And of coarse (sic), it didn't. Dick never mentioned that part of the conversation, did he?
