Denver mayor says he won’t run for governor

DENVER, Colorado – Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper says he has no plans to run against Gov. Bill Ritter.

Hickenlooper told The Denver Post in Wednesday’s editions that he’s been offered campaign donations and a peek at flattering polls if he challenges Ritter next year.

Both men are Democrats.

Hickenlooper didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press Wednesday.

He tells The Post it would be bad for Colorado to have the governor and the Denver mayor fighting it out on the campaign trail.
