DENVER (CBS4) – Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper was on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday morning. He talked about why he still supports Hillary Clinton even though Bernie Sanders won the Colorado Democratic caucuses.
Face the Nation host John Dickerson asked, “You are superdelegate. We talked to Bernie Sanders earlier in the show and he said that superdelegates from states that he won should go along with him. So he won Colorado. Are you going to take his advice and vote for Bernie Sanders come convention time?”
Hickenlooper defended his position on voting for Clinton.
“Well you know that the superdelegate thing started 30 years ago and that idea is that people that have been elected office for a longer period time, maybe have a longer perspective on things, that they’ll bring some stability. And we’re looking at, you know I admire so many of the issues that Bernie has raised,” Hickenlooper responded. “Senator Sanders has really pushed out … why is it that we’re not training people more rapidly for the new economy? Why is it that kids are having such large debt when they finish college? But I think that Hillary is more likely, in an incremental kind of hard-solving approach, is going to get results sooner I think than him. And I think that’s where I’m intending, I should support really who I think is going to do the best job.”
