Introducing Scott McInnis
Colorado: GOP former Rep. Scott McInnis has filed the paperwork to officially enter the 2008 CO Senate race. But who is Scott McInnis? What has he been up to since his retirement from the House? DKos diarist angka offers some insight into McInnis' recent professional life via a press release from ProgressNowAction:
Call to Save Colorado’s Western Slope from the Oil Industry: Mr. McInnis, take a bow. Scott "McLobbyist" McInnis isn't a bad nickname to go with Sprintin' John Sununu and Two-Faced Susan Collins. Montana's Gov. Schweitzer and Sen. Tester showed the GOP what happens to Republican candidates who claim to be good ole Mountain West conservatives, but actually sell out hunters, ranchers, and environmentalists to K Street and the right-wingers. If McInnis wins his primary, Rep. Udall will give him a similar education.
Stop Scott "McLobbyist" McInnis from selling out the Western Slope
Denver: ProgressNowAction launched a new online campaign to save Colorado’s Western Slope from the expansion of massive oil drilling led by the Canadian oil company EnCana and its lobbyist, ex-Congressman Scott McInnis.
"We call on the public to join our citizens’ campaign to oppose efforts by EnCana and its lobbyist Scott McInnis that threaten the Western Slope’s land and private property rights," stated Michael Huttner, Executive Director of ProgressNowAction.
