    SOME NEWS -- We asked COLORADO GOV. JOHN HICKENLOOPER during a Playbook Exchange event here if he would run for the White House on a ticket with OHIO REPUBLICAN GOV. JOHN KASICH. He said: “I don’t think Kasich would ever do that … You never know. You never say. He’s an easy person to work with. He’s strongly opinionated. And quick to his opinion. But he also knows as much about the federal budget, and understands health care at a deeper level than almost any other governor I know. ... I don’t think it’s in the cards. But I do...

    The chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee is rejecting President Trump’s keystone proposal for border security, saying “a wall is not the right way to proceed.” During a Wednesday telephone town hall with constituents, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Col.) said building a wall is neither the most cost-effective nor the most secure way of closing the southern border. "As far as the wall goes, I believe we have to have border security, but I do think billions of dollars on a wall is not the right way to proceed," Gardner said. "I don't support a tariff to pay for any...

    Gov. John Hickenlooper is talking about the Trump administration for the first time since the president’s inauguration. “There is a sense that it’s one thing after another after another after another that are so unorthodox and so startling in a way,” Hickenlooper said. But the governor urged Coloradans to be open-minded. “We owe him the benefit of the doubt. He is the president of the United States,” he said. In the same breath, the governor admitted Trump wasn’t making it easy. “The apparent disregard for the truth and facts … the really accelerated pace by which decisions are being made...

    Colorado’s election chief is warning that presidential electors who vote for someone other than Hillary Clinton — the state's popular vote winner — could face a perjury charge. The warning from Secretary of State Wayne Williams, a Republican, increases the peril for a group of Colorado’s Democratic presidential electors who have signaled they may reject Clinton as part of a long-shot national strategy to block the election of Donald Trump. They were already facing the prospect of an election law violation that carries the potential for a small fine and a year of jail time. Williams told POLITICO in a...

Law enforcement is preparing and the secret service is in town as Trump will land at the Grand Junction Regional Airport to speak to the Western Slope community ahead of Wednesday's debate in Las Vegas.

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is tied with Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton in the all-important western battleground state of Colorado, a new Breitbart News Network/Gravis Marketing survey from the state shows. In the poll of 1,246 registered voters in Colorado conducted on Oct. 3 and Oct. 4, Trump and Clinton both received 40 percent of support from those surveyed. Libertarian Gary Johnson got 10 percent, and Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein got 3 percent, while 6 percent were unsure. The poll has a margin of error of 2.8 percent at the 95 percent confidence level and was conducted using...

    The three largest unions representing the three largest police departments in Colorado have endorsed Republican Donald Trump for president, the Denver Post reported. The Denver Police Protective Association, the Aurora Police Association and the Colorado Springs Police Protective Association on Monday announced their endorsements. Combined, the three unions represent more than 2,700 police officers serving communities in the crucial battleground state, which used to vote reliably Republican. However, years of immigration has essentially changed the demographic composition of the state, which Democrats hope to make more like New Mexico. In a news release, representatives from each union said “only” Mr....

He will head up to Loveland afterward, where he is likely to speak around 5 or 6 p.m. Doors for that event, which will be held at the Budweiser Events Center, open at 3 p.m. His campaign has recently dumped about $2 million in new advertising into Colorado after recent polls began to show the lead Democratic rival...

    Just before the first presidential debate Monday night, a new round of polls has been released that should strike fear into the hearts of Democrats. First off, the national race is looking very tight indeed. Democrats had hoped that Clinton had rebounded after a couple of respected polls last week showed her taking a 6-point lead over Trump. But the newest polls from major outlets — ABC News/Washington Post, Quinnipiac, and Bloomberg — show Clinton up 2, up 1, and down 2 to Trump in a four-way matchup that includes Gary Johnson and Jill Stein. But what’s probably scarier for...

    Donald Trump's campaign is planning its biggest ad buy to date — upward of $10 million on commercials airing over the next week or so. The campaign is expects the ads to air as soon as Monday in nine swing states: Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Florida, where the campaign has already been on the air, along with New Hampshire, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada. 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney lost eight of those nine states. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, has so far been badly outspent by his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, and groups supporting her....

    Donald Trump is getting serious about Colorado. After an abysmal showing at the state assembly - he didn't win a single pledged delegate to the Republican National Convention - Trump will be in Denver Friday for both his first public speech and his first private fundraiser in the Centennial State. Trump is scheduled to talk at the Western Conservative Summit in the morning before attending a private fundraiser in the home of former Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan. The rumored $10,000 a couple lunch event is being co-hosted by Pete Coors and Larry Mizel. For those unable or unwilling to...

    DENVER – Darryl Glenn emerged as the winner Tuesday following a divisive and chaotic five-man Republican U.S. Senate race that observers saw as uncertain to the last minute. Glenn will now turn his attention to incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet, who has received more than $7.6 million in individual contributions and has more than $5.7 million in the bank, after already purchasing significant television advertising in recent months. Glenn, an El Paso County commissioner, earned 37 percent of the vote as of 8:30 p.m. He was followed by Jack Graham with 25 percent, Robert Blaha with 16 percent, Jon Keyser with...

    Pete Coors and Mike Shanahan, a pair of giants in Colorado beer and football, are two of several boldfaced names planning a Friday fundraiser for Donald Trump to coincide with the Republican candidate’s visit to the state that day for the Western Conservative Summit. While the names on the host committee may suggest a Sunday-tailgate kind of affair — Coors is a longtime beer executive and Shanahan used to coach the Denver Broncos — the entry fee to the presidential fundraiser is decidedly more expensive than what one would find in the parking lot of Mile High stadium. It’s at...

    The chairman of the Colorado Republican Party has gotten such a violent reaction to the results of his state’s caucus last weekend that he says he is considering bringing a local sheriff as one of his guests to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer. “I’ve made the decision that I would not take my wife along. I am certainly at the very least going to use my personal guest pass to bring along a Republican sheriff," Steve House told POLITICO in an interview. “People might think that’s crazy, but not after what we’re growing through right now.” What...
