CO Governor Calls Email Scandal “Death Knell” For Clinton, Is Named To Clinton Leadership Council

This morning, Hillary Clinton’s campaign released its “leadership council” list—a set of supporters in various states. The list in Colorado included the state’s governor, John Hickenlooper.

The timing of the announcement is a bit awkward, given that just a few days ago, Hickenlooper called Clinton’s email scandal a “death knellif its revealed she broke the law:

Last week Gov. Hickenlooper expressed many Democrats’ unease about Clinton’s campaign. He said he feared it could be the “death knell” if she broke the law by using her private email address while Secretary of State. Still, he remains a prominent backer.

That should make things awkward at the next leadership council meeting!
