Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes has gotten nearly $72,000 in reimbursements from his campaign.

The Denver Post reported Wednesday that Maes was reimbursed for expenses such as mileage and travel as well as trips to Wal-Mart. The campaign also paid $14,101 to Maes' daughter and executive aide Jordan, for work and for some expenses.

Those payments amount to nearly 30 percent of the $304,000 Maes has raised.

Maes said his campaign doesn't have a credit card and pays for expenses as they arise. He says there might have been times when he had to use personal checks or cash to cover expenses.

Third-party candidate Tom Tancredo has reimbursed himself about $3,800 for expenses while Democrat John Hickenlooper hasn't been paid for any.
