Scott McInnis Elk Hunting VIDEO: Gubernatorial Candidate Gets Back To Nature

A recently-uploaded Youtube video depicts a younger, rugged version of GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis plugging the virtues of the Western Slope. The video, shot when McInnis represented the Third Congressional District in Congress, takes a reverential, almost cultish tone in describing the Glenwood Springs Republican's conservationism.

It's likely too early to determine whether the sight of McInnis in a denim suit making elk calls will help or hurt him in a potential general election. McInnis has yet to comment on whether we may see a revival of the fur-lined denim jacket.
