DENVER (October 1, 2015) – Colorado’s Governor John Hickenlooper is the latest Democrat to express doubt about the viability of Hillary Clinton’s campaign for President. According to the Denver Post, Hickenlooper’s trepidation is driven by Former Secretary of State Clinton’s recent email scandal. The Governor said about the Clinton campaign he was feeling, “kind of grim, to be blunt.”
Today’s remarks stand in contrast to Hickenlooper’s earlier comments about Hillary Clinton’s prospects to Colorado Public Radio, just a few months ago.
“These comments are an indication of the larger concerns Democrats are whispering about the Clinton campaign behind closed doors,” said Kelly Maher, executive director of Compass Colorado. “Governor Hickenlooper is notorious for just saying whatever is on his mind, it’s gotten him into trouble in the past, but in this case, he’s just saying what they are all thinking.”
