Looks like Jared Polis isn’t the only politician Democrats were dragging their feet to endorse.

Just yesterday, nearly three months after the primary, Gov. Hickenlooper finally decided to surrender his backing to fellow Democrat Diane Mitsch Bush.


The former state representative who beat back two Democrats to challenge U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton for the 3rd District congressional seat.

We’re not sure what took Hick so long to throw her his support. Perhaps it’s her lack of presence or support on the Western Slope, and he just forgot about her.

The timing is interesting, though, as it comes just days before the Club 20 debate.

Now she’s insulated from any embarrassing questions as to why she couldn’t nail down the governor’s endorsement.

However, we strongly hinted, this doesn’t preclude the moderators from asking her why it took so long.
