Hickenlooper on 2020: People Are Telling Me ‘I Hope You Go for It’

Gov. John Hickenlooper (D-CO) took another step toward a 2020 presidential run on Wednesday, telling Politico that he’s seen “a genuine interest in terms of what we’ve done in Colorado” and that people in his state have told him, “I hope you go for it.”

Politico reported:

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is edging closer to a potential run for president, following what he called an “encouraging” summer mulling a campaign.

“What I saw was an interest … a genuine interest in terms of what we’ve done in Colorado,” Hickenlooper told POLITICO late Thursday.

…“The response in Colorado has been generally not snarky and, ‘Who do you think you are?’ but really, ‘Thank you for all the hard work and, you know, I hope you go for it.’”

The outlet also reported Hickenlooper will campaign for gubernatorial candidates in Florida and Georgia this month, a sign he’s looking to build relationships with prominent figures around the country ahead of a potential 2020 run.

Hickenlooper has previously said he would wait until after his eight-year tenure wrapped up in 2018 before deciding on a presidential run in 2020.
