McInnis snags endorsements of 36 sheriffs

Scott McInnis on Thursday claimed the endorsements of 36 sheriffs in Colorado in his bid for governor.

McInnis, a former U.S. representative from Grand Junction, accepted the endorsements in front of the Mesa County Justice Center, flanked by Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hilkey and the county’s chief deputy district attorney, Mark Hand.

Hilkey stressed McInnis’ position on illegal immigration and border security as needed to prevent drug smuggling and human trafficking across the border into the Southwest.

“With an unsecured border, we’re always going to struggle with those problems,” Hilkey said.

McInnis is in a primary contest with Evergreen businessman Dan Maes for the GOP nomination. Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper is the Democrats’ candidate to replace fellow Democrat Gov. Bill Ritter.
