    Former Gov. John Hickenlooper leads U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner by 18 percentage points in Colorado's U.S. Senate race, according to a poll from Colorado firms released Wednesday. The Keating-Onsight-Melanson poll of likely voters, made available in advance of its release to Colorado Politics, shows Hickenlooper with 54% support to Gardner's 36% in a hypothetical head-to-head contest, with 9% undecided and 1% picking another candidate.

    WESTMINSTER, Colo. — Former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper earned a powerful supporter in his U.S. Senate bid Monday when Gabby Giffords came into town to announce her endorsement for him. Before a rally in Aurora, the two hosted a roundtable discussion at the Butterfly Pavilion in Westminster to discuss gun violence, a vital issue for Hickenlooper. Hickenlooper and Giffords were joined by the families of victims of gun violence who shared their stories of loss as well as local officials, activists and a tech company. “Colorado is obviously a state that brings together a history of gun ownership and hunting...

    Andrew Romanoff, a staunch progressive who has championed policies such as the Green New Deal, on Saturday claimed victory over former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper in the state's Democratic Senate caucuses. Romanoff made the declaration with reported results showing him earning 55 percent of the raw vote and Hickenlooper with just 31 percent, the Denver Post reported.

Denver lawyer Mark Grueskin was made a special assistant attorney general and appointed in October 2018 to handle the ethics complaint against Hickenlooper. Hickenlooper, now running for U.S. Senate to try to unseat Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, was governor until January of this year, but the ethics case is ongoing. ...

    The hopeful caveat comes right up front: This is a Democratic poll and there’s fully a year to go before Coloradans vote.But the caveat comes with its own caveat. An independent poll of the state conducted by Emerson in August found Gardner trailing John Hickenlooper by a similar margin. Emerson had it 53/40. Today’s Democratic poll has it 53/42. Normally it’d be implausible for any incumbent senator to trail by double digits in a swing state, but … Colorado’s not much of a swing state anymore. It’s blue enough that Hillary managed to win it in 2016 when virtually...

    Former governor requested two extensions while running for president John Hickenlooper's exit from the presidential race came on the same day he would have had to file his financial disclosure forms with the Office of Government Ethics. By entering the Colorado U.S. Senate race instead—a job he repeatedly said he did not want and would not be well suited for—the former governor will not have to provide a financial disclosure with the Senate Select Committee on Ethics until May 15, 2020. After formally becoming a presidential candidate on March 4, 2019, Hickenlooper requested two extensions that were granted by the...

    DENVER — A decision by national Democrats to throw their support behind John Hickenlooper in Colorado’s U.S. Senate race sparked an intense email discussion among state Democratic Party officers over the weekend, with allusions to Nazism, criticisms of Hickenlooper and calls for formal opposition. The emails offer a window into an intraparty conflict that is sure to spill out in public for weeks and months to come as Democrats debate who should be their nominee to take on Republican Sen. Cory Gardner. Hickenlooper has made it clear that he neither understands nor cares about the true problems in our country,”...

    The teasing is apparently over for former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper. Even before his presidential bid crashed and burned in spectacular fashion, Democrats had been pleading with him to drop out and take a run at Cory Gardner’s Senate seat. Apparently, Hickenlooper is taking the Vox populi, vox Dei approach because he announced this morning that he will be doing precisely that. (Associated Press)

John Hickenlooper of Colorado is in discussions about ending his presidential bid and entering the race for his state’s Republican-held Senate seat, potentially giving Democrats a strong candidate in a race they must win to have hopes of retaking the chamber in 2021, according to four Democrats familiar with his thinking.

    Congrats to Governor Hickenlooper (Colorado) for going after Crazy Bernie's Medicare for All ideas. Bernie's wacky gestures (first 10 seconds of the video) are an absolute riot!  Bernie goes ballistic and shows his true nutcase colors on this one.  Don't miss it. Later on in the video, Bernie brags, "I've got practical experience since was a mayor."  I looked it up, and it's true. Bernie was big-time mayor of Burlington, Vermont in the '80s, a town of only 42,000.  Burlington is the 875th largest town in the United States.  BTW, Buttplug Neuman's city of South Bend (100K) is 288th on...

    Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s senior team urged him last month to withdraw from the presidential race gracefully and run for Colorado’s Senate seat or pursue other opportunities, a source familiar with the situation told POLITICO. The source said that the campaign only has about 13,000 donors, making it almost impossible to qualify for the next round of presidential debates in the fall. The campaign also only raised just over $1 million in the second quarter — about what he raised in the first 48 hours of his candidacy — and will likely run out of money completely in about...

    RUSH: More on the California Democrat convention and the booing of John Hickenlooper. The former governor of Colorado gets booed off the stage, practically, for simply saying heading in the direction of socialism is not… Not “heading in the direction.” Socialism is not the answer. The people in California didn’t want to hear that. California’s Democrats… California, politically, is a socialist state now — and I say that in the meaning of the term ideologically. Of course, that encompasses attitudinal and behavioral and everything else. From all intents and purposes, California is a socialist state. So let’s examine just some...

When Hickenlooper spoke against universal healthcare, the audience booed him again.

    During the California Democratic Party Convention on Saturday, 2020 presidential candidate and former governor of Colorado John Hickenlooper was not well received by the crowd, especially when he warned them about their party’s radical leftward shift. "If we want to beat Donald Trump and achieve big progressive goals, socialism is not the answer,” Hickenlooper told them before being met with a chorus of jeers. "If we’re not careful, we’re going to end up helping to re-elect the worst president in American history." Well, it’s a little late for that, but clearly, the convention of the radical base of California Democrats...

    Democratic activists booed former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) on Saturday after he warned party faithful about the perils of embracing socialism and socialist positions ahead of next year's presidential race. Hickenlooper, a former governor of a purple state Hillary Clinton won by just 4.9 percent of the vote in 2016, said Republicans would use the Democratic flirtation with socialism to paint the entire party as outside the mainstream of the political spectrum. "If we want to beat Donald Trump and achieve big progressive goals, socialism is not the answer," Hickenlooper told delegates to the California Democratic Party convention. Some...

    John Hickenlooper wants to be president. He’s one of a whole lot of Democrats who have entered the 2020 presidential race, and at this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if my cat entered the race, the field has gotten so crowded. Hickenlooper is touting his accomplishments on gun control to set himself apart from the pack. Unlike most other candidates, he can cite accomplishments beyond introducing bills that won’t go anywhere. Following the theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado in 2013, he signed several gun control bills into law. What he’s not talking about is something that NBC News of all...
