Term-limited in Colorado, Governor John Hickenlooper could make a run for the White House

DENVER – If Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper needs something to do after he leaves the Colorado capitol later this year, Denver Post columnist Krista Kafer and Blair Miller of TheDenverChannel.com think he might be attractive to voters as a candidate for President.

“I think he is someone who people who don’t know him would sort of be drawn towards,” Miller told Anne Trujillo on this weekend’s Politics Unplugged. “He’s from Colorado. He’s a centrist, kind of. I think that could draw some outside voters.”

“The idea of having a president from a state west of the Mississippi that would be wonderful, somebody who is thoughtful and moderate, who tweets nice things, running for president would be fantastic,” Kafer added. “I think it would be the democrats best interest to put forward a thoughtful, moderate person and it would be a great contrast with President Trump.”

Miller & Kafer also talk about the recent changes in President Trump’s cabinet. Politics Unplugged airs Sundays at 4:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Denver7.
