In an article about the gubernatorial races across the country in 2014, Hickenlooper is singled out as a Democrat governor with a tough re-election ahead of him.
Referencing the latest Quinnipiac poll of Colorado that found Hickenlooper’s numbers collapsing faster than Greece’s credit score, Politico suggests Hick’s 2014 re-election could be a “nail biter.”
In Colorado, for example, Hickenlooper was one of the nation’s most popular governors not long ago. A push for background checks in the wake of the Aurora movie theater shooting and a temporary reprieve for a man on death row brought his numbers back to earth. He’s still favored to win reelection, but one recent poll suggests it will be a nail-biter.
