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.

    Dan Maes, a righteous man, is competing against Democrat spending and half truth smearing. First time Republican candidates stick to issures rather than using character smashing emothional appeal tactics.

    When you have the amount of political "machine" money behind you that Hickenlooper has, I can see why you haven't had to dig into your own pocket.
