Reuters reports that former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper joined the growing field of Democratic presidential candidates on Monday,
hoping to position himself as a centrist and an experienced office holder who is best poised to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020.
67 year-old Hickenlooper will tout his business background in two terms in office during which Colorado's economy soared
and the state expanded health care and passed a gun control law.
The former governor who left office in January refused to air negative ads during his two gubernatorial campaigns,
a position his aides insist he will carry into his presidential bid.
