    Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, after meeting with Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week in Washington, says that he doesn’t believe a federal crackdown on legal marijuana is on the way, adding that Sessions called the Obama administration’s guidance on marijuana “not too far from good policy.” “The meeting was very productive, and overall it was very good,” Jacque Montgomery, press secretary for the Democratic governor, told HuffPost. Montgomery said that Sessions spent about an hour with Hickenlooper, and they discussed the state’s successful marijuana regulation, its collection of data on usage, what the state has learned since the first legal...

    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...

    As some of the world's most influential people wrestled with the implications of President Donald Trump at the World Economic Forum this past week, a new face in US politics grabbed their attention. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper served as a representative of the Democratic Party's future here, just as outgoing Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry represented the past. If this gathering is any indication, Hickenlooper may be on the verge of building buzz as a 2020 hopeful. Several attendees pointed to him as someone who could rescue the party after its disastrous 2016 losses. One...

Clinton met separately with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, according to a person familiar with the process. The person would speak only on condition of anonymity to discuss the private...

    This morning, Face the Nation host John Dickerson interviewed Colorado governor John Hickenlooper whom he described as "candid" based on a book he wrote. However, as the interview progressed, it became very apparent that rather than being candid, Hickenlooper was robotically reciting Democrat talking points so sycophantically loyal to Hillary Clinton that even many Democrats would be embarrassed to repeat them.

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign is reported to have used a static noise machine on Thursday to block reporters outside of a fundraiser in Denver from hearing her remarks. Stan Bush, a reporter for Denver’s CBS-4, who was stationed outside of the event, reported that the machine was held outdoors at the home of Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a superdelegate who has endorsed Clinton. Clinton, who was holding a fundraiser Thursday evening in Colorado, was speaking outside at a private residence. Just when she started to speak, campaign staffers directed a speaker spewing out static noise at reporters hanging out across the...

    Armstrong and Kopel: Hickenlooper's shots at law-abiding gun owners don't help In the immediate aftermath of the criminal attack on the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, public officials should be helping the community come together to heal and supporting the survivors and the victims’ families. Instead, Gov. Hickenlooper has used the occasion for a mean-spirited verbal assault on innocent people. Hickenlooper told CNN: “In Colorado Springs — it’s one of the more conservative parts of the state — we probably have more people that have licenses for concealed weapons, probably more guns around. That didn’t help.” Hickenlooper’s gratuitous insults...

Hick says that no refugee has ever committed an act of terror on American soil.

    [...] Hickenlooper, founder of a beer brewery and a former mayor of Denver, opposed the historic 2012 measure that legalized pot for adults 21 and older. But in the interview published on Wednesday in Westword, he says legalization hasn't been so bad, after all. "Now I look at how far we've come, and I think there's a real possibility that we'll have a system that works... if you eliminate the black market, make it harder for kids to get marijuana. We can put more money into education for kids," he says. "The sky isn't falling. People thought it was the...

You would think a cabinet member who had every reason to assume that classified information would be circulating on her server would insist on a company renowned for security. Instead she went with a small outfit in Colorado, largely unknown outside the region, whose pipeline to the Clintons appears to have been the fact that their VP of sales was a big Democratic booster and got them some work at the 2008 Democratic convention.Were state secrets being stored on a server in an apartment bathroom?

    DENVER—Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s big gulp of water from the formerly orange Animas River wasn’t just icky, it was “reckless and irresponsible,” said New Mexico’s top environmental official. New Mexico environment department secretary Ryan Flynn said Mr. Hickenlooper’s decision to fill up his water bottle from the site of the EPA’s 3-million-gallon wastewater spill in Durango, Colorado, sends the wrong message. “If it’s true, it’s a reckless and irresponsible act by a public official,” said Mr. Flynn in the Farmington (N.M.) Daily Times. “He might as well stick 15 cigarettes in his mouth and light them all at the same...

    Gov. John Hickenlooper has pledged that Colorado will comply with the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, but this effort to cut so-called “CO2 pollution” could come at a dear price to the state’s coal industry. ... Colorado is among the top states in coal production and consumption. In the year 2013, 64 percent of energy produced in Colorado came from coal, 20 percent from natural gas, and around 15 percent from various renewables including hydroelectric, biomass, solar and wind. The history of Colorado’s coal mining industry stretches over the past two centuries. Not to mention, coal jobs have a multiplier effect...

    DENVER — Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper made good Friday on his promise to sue the federal government over its hotly contested move to list the Gunnison sage grouse under the Endangered Species Act. The Colorado Attorney General’s office filed a notice of intent to sue with Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and Fish and Wildlife Service director Daniel M. Ashe, arguing that the agency’s Nov. 12 decision to list the bird as threatened was flawed and failed to appreciate fully the impact of aggressive state and local conservation efforts. “The Service failed to use the best available science in its listing...
