    Washington Post mentioned Hickenlooper's speech that included

    "We have the number one economy in the country for three straight years.” "

    When asked about the claim, the response was: “Colorado has been ranked the number one economy in the country for three years running by U.S. News,” Hickenlooper spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said.

    WAPO;s Fact Checker analysis looked a bit more carefully, and wound up with a donation of Two Pinocchios on his claim.

    Two Pinocchios = "Significant omissions and/or exaggerations. Some factual error may be involved but not necessarily. A politician can create a false, misleading impression by playing with words and using legalistic language that means little to ordinary people. (Similar to "half true.") "
