Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper is declaring victory. He spoke to the media and supporters at the capitol this morning.
Votes have been tallied in 54 of Colorado’s 64 counties and the gubernatorial results are close with Hickenlooper leading by just one percentage point. His challenger congressman Bob Beauprez is refusing to concede. His campaign told the Denver Post about 120,000 votes still need to be counted.
Still, Hickenlooper said this morning he’s the victor.
