Hickenlooper, former governor of Colorado, will compete for Democratic candidacy

 Washington, DC – Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper announced that he will opt for the Democratic presidential candidacy ahead of the 2020 elections, joining a well-nourished group of Democratic candidates.

“I present my candidacy for president because we need dreamers in Washington but we also need to get things done,” Hickenlooper said in his campaign’s release video.

The former mayor of Denver highlighted as credentials “having proven again and again that we can bring people together to produce the progressive change that Washington has failed to offer”.
In his message he showed images of the current president, Donald Trump, whom he described as “bravado” and pointed out that “the country faces a crisis that threatens” its basic values.

Hickenlooper, 67, a geologist by training, was governor of Colorado between 2011 and 2019.

With him are already 14 candidates for the bid for 2020.
This weekend, Senator Bernie Sanders, who already contested Hillary Clinton’s candidacy in 2016, announced his intention to compete again.

The strong contention for the Democratic presidential candidacy of 2020 counts among the candidates the Senators, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand, as well as the former Secretary of Housing Julián Castro, among others.

Other Democratic figures on which his possible candidacy is speculated are former Vice President Joe Biden, and the popular Texas state ex-congressman Beto O’Rourke. (EFEUSA)
