Hickenlooper's Summer Media Pass (VIDEO)

As promised in a previous post, here's footage from a July 20 event in Pueblo with Colorado gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper. No surprise, I didn't get in. But I assume whomever was in the TV news that van drove past me got a warmer welcome. Here's their article and video on the event, "Hickenlooper Brings Jobs Plan To Pueblo."

Clearly, the Denver mayor himself is getting a warm welcome from print and broadcast media as he tours the state.

That's not to say those media outlets, and others, won't take a harder look at Hickenlooper after the Aug. 10 primary, in which he's running opposed.

But the last time I heard someone ask Hickenlooper the very tough questions that Coloradans deserve to have asked -- and that Hickenlooper should answer -- is on the Caplis and Silverman radio show.
