Gubernatorial Candidates Making Final Pitches to Voters

JOHN-HICKENLOOPER-300BEAUPREZColorado’s gubernatorial contest is still too close to call and with days to go both candidates are making final pitches to voters in the battleground swing state. Both Democratic Governor John Hickenlooper and Republican Bob Beauprez targeted Hispanics yesterday. Hickenlooper did a Spanish-language interview urging Hispanic voters to come out in support for him, and Beauprez visited a Mexican restaurant in the Denver suburb of Thornton. Hickenlooper has made Colorado’s improving economy a major part of his argument to voters, citing the state’s 4.7 percent unemployment rate. Beauprez has countered that the economic recovery has been slow and spotty, with areas like Grand Junction and Colorado Springs still seeing slow growth. The GOP holds an edge in voter turnout ahead of tomorrow, with Republican voters casting over 112,000 more votes than Democrats.  Pictured:  left-John Hickenlooper; right-Bob Beauprez
