DENVER -

The Republican gubernatorial hopefuls say they would undo many of the policies enacted by Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, including new gun restrictions and possibly in-state tuition for immigrants in the country illegally.

The candidates also said they would execute convicted mass-murdered Nathan Dunlap, who was granted an indefinite stay by Hickenlooper last year.
    
The three candidates - former U.S. Rep. Bob Beauprez (bo-PRAY'), Secretary of State Scott Gessler, and former state Sen. Mike Kopp - made their pitches Thursday on a KUSA-TV debate.
    
The three candidates said they oppose abortion, but Gessler said there should be exemptions for rape and incest. Beauprez said he respects those who disagree with his stance on abortion.
    
A fourth candidate, former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, chose not to participate in the debate.
    
The GOP primary is in June.
