RE/MAX co-founder for Colorado governor?

Primary results may scuttle effort to draft Dave Liniger as candidate

Speculation that Republican Party leaders in Colorado would draft RE/MAX co-founder and chairman Dave Liniger to run for governor is likely to die down now that a party outsider, tea party favorite Dan Maes, has won the Republican nomination in Tuesday’s primary election.

Republican Party leaders were reportedly hoping that the candidate they’d initially backed for governor — former Congressman Scott McInnis — would defeat Maes in the primary, and then step aside in favor of Liniger.
