Hickenlooper, Despite Bad Year, Still has Advantage

Although John Hickenlooper had a bad year, as the incumbent governor, he still has the advantage in his re-election.

Incumbent governors tend to win re-election. Only one lost in Colorado in the last half century.

Johnny Vanderhoof, who passed away this year, lost to Dick Lamm in the 1974 Democratic wave after President Nixon’s resignation. Vanderhoof, not really running for re-election, had moved up from Lt. Governor.
