Not A Good Week To Be A Democrat Running For Governor

Democrats running for Governor across the country have faced a flurry of bad press this past week. Take a look at the 3 who have had the worst week:

John Hickenlooper (D-CO)

  • Hickenlooper’s staffing overhaul has cost Colorado $21 million when it was supposed to be cost-neutral. Some suspect that Hickenlooper favored donors because several hires were financial supporters of Hickenlooper’s campaign.
  • Hickenlooper’s administration is lacking transparencyThe Denver Post filed a records request of the governor’s appointees, but the newspaper was stonewalled.

Howie Morales (D-NM)

Pat Quinn (D-IL)
