Just 45 percent of Colorado voters want Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper re-elected, and half disapprove of his stance on new gun laws and the death penalty after his refusal to set an execution date for a convicted mass murderer, according to a poll released Friday.
The governor’s race has officially begun and Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper is touring southern Colorado as potential Republican opponents increase attacks on his record.
If convicted he’ll be the first person to face the death penalty in Denver in years, and one day after the district attorney announced his decision in the case of Dexter Lewis, experts are skeptical a Denver jury would go along the capital punishment.
State Sen. Greg Brophy held a rally on Sunday to announce that he is the latest Republican joining the race for governor.
From the 1960s to the early 1990s, Republicans hammered Democrats on crime for focusing too much on rehabilitation and not enough on punishment and imprisonment.
Colorado voters overwhelmingly back the death penalty and are evenly split on whether Gov. John Hickenlooper, who last month blocked the execution of a convicted multiple-murderer, deserves re-election, according to a new poll released Thursday.
Prosecutors asked a judge Monday to keep the case against convicted killer Nathan Dunlap active, in case a future governor decides to reinstate his death sentence.
Attorneys for convicted killer Nathan Dunlap are puzzling over their next step in three potentially significant court cases after Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper granted Dunlap an unprecedented temporary reprieve.
The decision to grant a temporary reprieve has put both capital punishment and how key decisions are made by our elected officials in the spotlight, and they are likely to stay there for some time.
Gov. John Hickenlooper’s decision this week to issue a temporary reprieve of convicted killer Nathan Dunlap’s death penalty sentence has reinvigorated the Republican Party.
