    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...

    Full Title: Hick and Kasich take their bromance to CNN to introduced their bipartisan model to working stuff out Gov. John Hickenlooper joined BFF and Ohio Gov. John Kasich on a CNN segment released Friday to discuss why the two have decided to join forces to show Democrats and Republicans can be friends. Speaking to CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour, Kasich, a Republican, claims the two are just “hanging out,” which he said is what happens when you “click with somebody.” And again, this is CNN, not an anonymous People magazine item about celebrities “stepping out.” He downplayed the potential for...

    They’ve appeared together enough that the jokes about them being running mates in 2020 seem a little less far-fetched and a little more plausible. For his part, Kasich said he’s not ruling anything out at this point — nor is he ruling anything in, for that matter. “It’s great to be here with my running mate,” he joked, generating laughter from the Brookings crowd. “If I was ever going to run with a Republican,” Hickenlooper countered, “He would be the one I’d run with.”

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | September 18, 2018 | Todd Shepherd
    Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has created a leadership political action committee, a sign he is interested in exploring a 2020 presidential run and raising funds to pay for travel and other campaign-like expenses such as polling. The two-term Democrat will be out of office in January due to term limits. He has long been on media lists of potential presidential contenders, behind politicians with more national recognition such as Sens. Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders, as well as former vice president Joe Biden. Hickenlooper has so far demurred or sidestepped questions about whether he will run. In August...

    The Trump administration wants to ease restrictions on oil and gas leasing and other activities across a huge swath of the American West that were put in place to protect an imperiled bird. The move involves conservation plans for greater sage grouse approved in 2015 under former President Barack Obama. Trump has vowed to increase U.S. energy production and open more lands to drilling. Conservation groups critical of Trump’s energy policies warned Wednesday’s proposal could unravel a years-long effort to shore up the bird’s struggling population. Interior Department officials said the revisions to the Obama-era plans were aimed at increasing...

    Colorado Springs Gazette ^ | April 23, 2018 | Peter Droege
    The governor of Colorado does our nation a grave disservice by misleading the public about the impact of marijuana on his state in the April 9 interview in Rolling Stone magazine. Neither the governor's statements, nor the smoke rising from 4/20 events, can hide the fact that drug use and addiction, especially among youths, are a growing public health concern in communities across Colorado and the nation. ... According to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, Colorado is a national leader among 12-17-year-olds in: (1) Last year marijuana use; (2) Last month marijuana use; and (3) The...

    Two governors are mulling a bipartisan presidential bid in 2020 to challenge President Trump, according to a new report. Axios reported on Friday that Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) are mulling a presidential bid in 2020, with Kasich likely at the top of the ticket. According to a source close to the negotiations, the discussions arose after the two governors got to know each other in conferences after the 2016 elections.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    John Hickenlooper has never been accused of being the brightest bulb in the Lamps'R'Us store, but he made space in his mouth to fit both feet in when he said that no refugees had ever committed an act of terrorism on American soil. Hick says that no refugee has ever committed an act of terror on American soil. Does he not know that Boston is on American soil, and not only where the Tzarnaevs refugees from Kyrgyzstan, but the federal government was supporting their terrorism by providing them with welfare benefits.
