Republican candidates debate in Colorado Springs

Hundreds turned out for a debate between several republican candidates vying for state positions in the November election.

"Candidate Search 2010" was organized by several conservative groups to give voters a chance to hear from some of the contenders.

"I'm hoping to have more information from them as to where they stand and if they stand for the things that I want to see," said Connie who came from Woodland Park for the event.

Candidates for governor, treasurer and U.S. Senate took the stage at Mr. Biggs, answering questions from conservative commentators and activists.

"What makes you electable more so than these candidates and in addition those that you will be facing in November," asked Richard Randall, a radio talk show host at KVOR.

Two of the republican candidates for governor Scott McInnis and Dan Maes weighed in on Amazon's decision to cut-off affiliates in Colorado because of a new online sales tax law. It was passed by the democratic-controlled legislature and signed by Governor Ritter.

"You don't raise these taxes and these are tax increases up there," said McInnis.

"I think what's going on in Denver is a crime against small business," said Maes.

Next Tuesday both parties will hold their caucuses to elect delegates for the county assembly.
