Former Colorado governor hints at 2020 presidential run

By  | 

WASHINGTON (Gray DC) -- John Hickenlooper, the former governor of Colorado, is closer to throwing his name into the pool of 2020 presidential candidates.

Gray Television Washington News Bureau reporter, Peter Zampa, caught up with Hickenlooper at the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington on Thursday. He tells Peter he is seriously considering going for it.

“I started out kind of leaning away from it. I'd say probably I am leaning into now," said Hickenlooper.

Before serving as Colorado’s governor, Hickenlooper served as Denver’s mayor for eight years, and prior to that, he was a successful businessman.

About his potential message, Hickenlooper says, "The most powerful thing in life is unity. When you bring people together and everyone has a common purpose and will…that’s when civilization moves forward."

He says his team will make a decision by March.
