KDVR FOX 31’s Joe St. George reports:, Colorado’s so-far friendly presidential rivalry is headed east this weekend:
[Gov. John] Hickenlooper is scheduled to visit Sioux City, Carroll and Ames in Iowa beginning on Saturday, February 22.
However, now it is clear he may not be the only Coloradoan thinking about a run for President.
Sen. Michael Bennet is heading to Iowa this weekend for multiple stops.
Bennet will begin his tour in Dubuque and will add house parties and visits to farms to his agenda beginning on Thursday, February 21. Bennet will hold events in Iowa through Saturday.
Although the weather is forecast to clear up here in Colorado by the weekend, Iowa’s forecast calls for continued crappy with occasional wintry mix face-peltings through early next week. As anyone who has ever had to endure the kind of high humidity bone-chilling bitter cold weather they get in the Hawkeye State knows, you’re not going to tour the place in February unless you really want to be President.
So our two local entrants among a growing herd of presidential wannabes have got that going for them.
