Gov. Hickenlooper files paperwork to run for reelection
FOX31 Denver ^ | August 13, 2013 | Eli Stokols

Posted on 08/14/2013 2:02:29 PM PDT by george76

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper officially filed paperwork with the Secretary of State Tuesday to seek a second term.

...

His decision in late May to grant a temporary reprieve to Chuck E. Cheese killer Nathan Dunlap prompted the first wave of Republican opponents to enter the race, starting with Tom Tancredo, the former GOP congressman who challenged Hickenlooper in 2010

...

Former Senate Minority Leader Mike Kopp, R-Littleton, who now heads up the Intermountain Rural Electric Association, which is still smarting over the passage this year of Senate Bill 252, which forces REAs to draw more energy from renewable sources, has also indicated he may join the primary field.

Tancredo would have been a shoo in if not for super rich easterners meddling in Colorado. Soros is also a co conspirator in the meddling. With two representatives under recall the election will probably exceed all others in mud slinging.

Sincerely hope Colorado citizens sober up and get rid of Chickenroper and his gang of East & West Coast weasels. Otherwise Colorado will slide into decay and debt like Californicate.

Thanks to George76 for the ping! Gov. Chickeneffer of Colo. running for 2nd term. Gun grabber.

And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them.

We are in a sea of transplant Liberals from California. They probably fled CA to get away from the high taxes and oppressive government only to create the same here in Colorado.

Texas is looking pretty good.

BTW, I am a Colorado native. My wife too.

You have my sympathy. We stopped visiting Colorado several years ago because the people became Californish.

You know it sucks when your Governor is more liberal than New Mexico’s current one. (Sorry, couldn’t resist)

My idiot niece got priced out of NorCal and moved there last year.

Ya. Me too.

There is still a decent population of Conservatives in Colorado. Mostly out in the rural areas and Colo Spgs. But they are getting squeezed by Liberal government in Denver.

Some positive news — the two recalls.

Freeped and bumped.

Looks like the field of potential opposition candidates is expanding by the minute. I sure hope the conservatives can unite around one candidate.

92 percent say no. I do hope you all don’t re-elect him. I love Colorado but won’t go back until he’s gone.

Another interesting poll on the right hand side of article. Deals with Republican position on Gay marriage.

39% think it’s too conservative
43% think it shouldn’t be changed
18% think it’s not conservative enough.

Could use some work.

Mine too. But take a small piece of heart that it took them several decades to get to your state. Californicators first ruined Oregon and then Washington State, before trying to move east. Too many real conservative folks in Idaho & thus "no joy" for liberals there so they dropped down to Colorado and surrounding areas. Of course my home state of Flori-duh, especially SOUTH Floriduh, which is the original New York (south). But things get better the closer one moves to the Georgia state line.

I hope he's opposed by a pro-gun guy or gal and gets so CRUSHED at the polls it sends a clear message to anti-gun politicians: Challenge the 2nd Amendment and consequently, our FREEDOM at the risk of your political career!
