Skip to comments.Gov. Hickenlooper files paperwork to run for reelection

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.

Would you vote for a second term for Hickenlooper?
( Half way down on the left side. )
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
I thought looper was gonna run for president...
Denver is the next Chicago....
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.
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. (multiple votes using multiple internetz devices are allowed!) And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
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.
Who is Chickenpooper?
You have my sympathy. We stopped visiting Colorado several years ago because the people became Californish.
The wonderful Gov. of Colorado./s
I think you misspelled his name, I think it is Dickinpooper.
You know it sucks when your Governor is more liberal than New Mexico’s current one. (Sorry, couldn’t resist)
Tancredo for Governor
My mistake : )
My idiot niece got priced out of NorCal and moved there last year.
Ya. We aren’t too happy to see our state turn to the dark side.
I hear you. I wanted an escape hatch other than Texas if it came to it.
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.
Thank you for voting!
Not sure 0.96%
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.
