Hickenlooper says Im running for president, then waffles ( Colorado)
Colorado Politics ^ | October 31, 2018 | Marianne Goodland

Posted on 10/31/2018 11:06:04 AM PDT by george76

At a diner in Hooksett, New Hampshire, Hickenlooper told a woman: “I’m the governor of Colorado and I’m gonna run for president.”

...

But then Hickenlooper hesitated, just a bit. “To be honest,” he told the woman behind the counter, “I haven’t made a final decision, and if I say I’m absolutely going to, then there are all kinds of legal ramifications. … I’m leaning strongly.”

...

It’s the second time in the last 11 days that he referred to his presidential ambitions. The Des Moines (Iowa) Register reported on Oct. 19 that Hickenlooper seemed to be moving closer to a decision to run. Hickenlooper visited Iowa that week.

According to the Register story, Hickenlooper met with 25 Democratic activists in Iowa. “I think there’s a pretty high probability that we’re going to go ahead and do it,” he said, adding that he is continuing to talk about it with his wife, Robin, the newspaper reported.

Hickenlooper is among at least six prominent Democrats visiting Iowa in October who may be toying with a 2020 run. They include California Sen. Kamala Harris, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

On Sept. 17, Hickenlooper formed a so-called leadership political action committee, seen as an important preliminary step in moving toward a presidential run. The Giddyup PAC reported at the end of September that it had raised $280,075 just in that two-week period. According to FEC records, the PAC does not qualify for more than one candidate.

Good ol’ Hickenpooper. I think the miasma of dope smoke polluting the Colorado atmosphere, particularly Denver and Boulder, has done a number on his brain. Why would the United States need a dumb libtard leftist as its president? You ponder that one, I’m gonna eat lunch.

Hickenlooper has no chance. He’s too white and not “progressive” enough to get the dem nomination.

Good ol’ Chickenpooper ... this guy couldn’t run a successful bar, or a state. He makes 0bastard look smart.

Unfortunatly, it looks like he’s going to be replaced by Jared Polis(Shultz), an even bigger idiot. This is what Californicators can do to a good state.

Stay in California you morons - you asked for that $hithole.

Based on his name alone I’d say he’s a lost cause from the get go.

Yes, the Democrat primaries are going to be a lot of fun!

Once we get past the mid-terms, the jockeying will begin in full earnest. I'm tracking this on Twitter (next update will be due in next day or so) and I believe we are going to have at least 24 major candidates.

In a sane Democrat party, he would probably be their top choice. He was a businessman before he got into politics, and while it isn't because of him, Colorado has been doing very well during his administration. If he was elected after two Trump terms, plus we still had Congress, that would be our best "Democrat wins" outcome.

But he is a white male and therefore has no base in the party.

Hickenlooper won’t get the nomination, but he could be a VP choice and/or set himself up for 2024.

Most of the country won’t. i had never heard of chicken and waffles until moving to GA. I tried Gladys Knight’s, and didn’t get the chicken and waffles thing. Now I am in AZ, and it is hot spices on fruit and in ice cream that I don’t get.
