DENVER (AP) Two sources tell The Associated Press that Republican state Sen. Josh Penry plans to drop out of the gubernatorial race.

The sources spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because they were not authorized to speak for Penry's campaign.

One source said Penry told him Monday that fundraising was a major issue in his race against former congressman Scott McInnis.

Another issue is the amount of time it was taking Penry away from his family, that source said.

A second source said Penry met with McInnis on Monday and informed him of his decision to withdraw.
