Hickenlooper’s latest TV ad focuses on Colorado’s recovery from floods, recession
DENVER -- The latest TV ad from Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat suddenly fighting for his political life, strikes the same theme as his State of the State address did in January: recovery. The 30-second spot features Hickenlooper, who is running neck and neck with Republican Bob Beauprez, standing along Highway 36 in Lyons, which was washed away during last September's flooding and has since been rebuilt.
