Hickenlooper did not announce he was running for governor until January 12, so that poll might not be all that useful.

Ritter made his announcement to not seek re-election late in the day January 5; on the 6th, there was speculation about who would run for governor, with the possibilities including Salazar, Hickenlooper, and others. At that time, Hickenlooper said if Salazar chose to run, he was all for him; Salazar chose not to run. But as of the 6th, Hickenlooper wasn't yet the candidate.

If Hickenlooper is smart, he won't make campaign appearances; instead he'll have public beer tasting sessions all over the state.

Who is the Libertarian Candidate (Libertarian Party) running for Colorado Governor?

Speaking of Governors, Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter's State of the State Address was very uplifting and encouraging to hear (over the Mike Rosen show archives today in the 11am hour at koa.com). Mike Rosen says that he doesn't think that "family reasons" are the true reason why Ritter isn't running again. When Ritter and Rosen keep referring to "significant" economic problems in Colorado, it's "insignificant" compared to what we experience in Arizona, Nevada, and the West Coast!

I'm tending to agree. I think the real reason was that he thought he would lose. And no, our problems aren't as bad as other states, nor do I blame Ritter for them all.

Do you guys think that if Pete Coors had taken that approach in his race against Salazar a couple of years ago, he would have been elected as our senator?
