Hickenlooper Undermines Amazon Bid

Greenwood Village, CO – Today’s Denver Post reports, “’There will be a sense of relief if they choose somewhere else, because there are a lot of challenges and lot of hard work we will be avoiding,’ Hickenlooper told the City Club of Denver on Tuesday in response to a question about Amazon.” “Nobody tweet that,” he said a moment later.

In response, Colorado Republican Chairman Jeff Hays issued the following statement: “Colorado needs to elect a Republican governor in 2018 who doesn’t shy away from ‘hard work.’ especially if it means a stronger economy for Coloradans. While other states are doing everything they can to land Amazon’s $5 billion investment, Gov. Hickenlooper is actively undermining Colorado’s chances.”
