Hickenlooper Adds Name to Presidential Race
By Kayla LaRosa 03/05/2019
Former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper is the latest to enter the crowded 2020 Presidential race.
The Democrat announced his candidacy in a two-minute video Monday, highlighting his journey from a laid off geologist to the mayor and eventual governor of the state of Colorado.
In the video, he refers to President Trump as a “bully.”
Hickenlooper is the second governor to enter the race, following Washington Gov. Jay Inslee’s announcement last week.
So far, there are 14 Democrats who have announced their candidacy.
The former governor will attend a “hometown sendoff” in Denver this week, and will then travel to Iowa.
