U.S. Senate candidate John Hickenlooper is overjoyed that Kamala Harris is the Democrat Party’s pick to run as vice president.
Hickenlooper described Harris as kind, fearless, and fantastic in a tweet Tuesday after Joe Biden announced his running mate.
And bonus for Colorado leftist Democrats like Hickenlooper, Harris has pledged to decimate Colorado’s economy through a nationwide ban on fracking.

She’s jailed more than 1,500 people for using marijuana.
She’s a defender of the death penalty, which should also put Colorado Democrats’ teeth on edge.
She also supported putting parents in jail for truant kids.

Reminder: Kamala Harris is an extremist that supports raising taxes, destroying the oil & gas industry, and a government takeover of healthcare.

Just ask U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner and President Trump.
