    Colorado Senate hopeful John Hickenlooper (D) recently praised China as a “great nation” deserving of American respect, according to a report, despite the nation being the origin of the virus plaguing America and the rest of the world. Hickenlooper, a former Democrat governor of Colorado, made the remarks to supporters on a Zoom call on Monday, according to the Washington Free Beacon. He ignored China’s recent military saber-rattling and crackdowns in Hong Kong, according to the report. “They do not want to rule the world,” he said on the call. “They don’t want to dominate. They want to be safe...

    Days after “social justice” riots erupted in downtown Denver last weekend, destroying businesses and launching fireworks at police, Colorado’s Democrat senator and its nominee to oust the state’s Republican incumbent have yet to condemn the political violence. Sen. Michael Bennet, re-elected in 2016, and former Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, who is running to unset Republican Sen. Cory Gardner this November, have joined the vast array of Democrats turning a blind eye to the lawless unrest in their states while cities burn. “They brought weapons to the table. They had guns. They brought explosives, axes, machetes, and had one intent, purpose...

    Colorado Supreme Court upholds 2013 large-capacity gun magazine ban as constitutional By: Blair Miller DENVER – The Colorado Supreme Court upheld the state’s ban on large-capacity gun magazines as constitutional in a ruling issued Monday nearly seven years after the law passed in the wake of the Aurora theater shooting. “The legislation is a reasonable exercise of the police power that has neither the purpose nor effect of nullifying the right to bear arms in self-defense. Accordingly, the court affirms the judgment of the court of appeals,” Justice Monica M. Márquez wrote in the opinion. Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and...

I offer my deepest apologies," Hickenlooper, who is running for Senate, said in a statement released by his campaign on Monday. The congressional hopeful's apology came after Tay Anderson, a member of the Denver School Board, on Monday tweeted a video of...

    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...

    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)

    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...
