Hickenlooper (hearts) Bennet AND Romanoff for Senate

Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, playing the role of Democratic Party conciliator as he runs for governor of Colorado, effusively praised appointed U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet AND Bennet’s primary challenger Andrew Romanoff when speaking to delegates at the Arapahoe County party assembly on Saturday.

“If you look out over the landscape of anywhere in the United States, I don’t think there are any two more talented candidates to be in the U.S. Senate than Michael Bennet and Andrew Romanoff,” Hickenlooper said.

“Andrew Romanoff is one of the most talented people I’ve ever seen in terms of bringing people together, articulating positions. His work as (Colorado) Speaker of the House is legendary.

“And Michael Bennet, both when he was in the private sector, when he helped me figure out how government works as my chief of staff and then as (Denver) superintendent of schools…He is simply one of the most talented people I’ve ever worked…probably the most talented person I’ve ever worked with in my life.”

“We’ve got two guys that are both head and shoulders above most other people in the Senate. What we have to do is make sure, as they work through this campaign, we keep it very positive on both sides.”

In January 2009, when Bennet was appointed to the U.S. Senate seat by Gov. Bill Ritter (who bypassed Hickenlooper, Romanoff and others), Hickenlooper spoke at the press conference.

“Among the other hopefuls in this thing, what an incredible group of people, remarkable candidates that there were,” Hickenlooper said then. “And yet, I cannot tell you how delighted I am that Michael Bennet was chosen. There is just no one who works harder than Michael Bennet. He doesn’t know the meaning of the word ‘quit.’”
