GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis promised Friday to make full restitution for the $300,000 he received for plagiarized essays about water rights and said it brings the issue to a close.

McInnis says he has already acknowledged responsibility for his mistake and he wants to move on.

The offer for repayment came after The Hasan Family Foundation board said it wants its money back, noting that McInnis has admitted some of the work wasn't his own.

The board also said McInnis didn't do the work he was obligated to do as a senior fellow of the foundation.
