Let me in, I'm a candidate! Guard does not recognize 2020 Democrat John Hickenlooper in Miami (but he stepped in – and destroyed Bernie's & # 39; s political revolution)
- Colorado Democrat John Hickenlooper barely started the debate
- He studies at less than one percent, despite being the governor of a large state
- In Miami he faced one of his most critical problems when he arrived at the media center: he was barely recognizable in a sea of press and surrogates
- Some candidates use a media center in the Adrienne Arsht Center of the Performing Arts for the debate
- As he tried to come in, a security officer asked the Democratic candidate: & # 39; Are you here to pick up press references? & # 39; He said: & # 39; I am a candidate & # 39;
Former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper barely made the debate in Miami and faced one of his most critical problems when he arrived at the media center on Wednesday.
He was barely recognizable in a sea of press and killed himself to go to the media center in the Adrienne Arsht Center of the Performing Arts campus in the 91 degree Fahrenheit heat.
Outside is a security officer who asks the Democratic candidate who polls with less than one percent: & # 39; Are you here to pick up press references? & # 39;
& # 39; I am a candidate, & # 39; he replied, according to one NPR news reporter.

Inside, the presidential candidate had no problem getting attention, and journalists immediately offered him the opportunity to attack his top competitors – Bernie Sanders, a democratic socialist who insists on a healthcare system for single-payers.
Hickenlooper said that Americans should have the opportunity to participate in government-led programs if they cannot make a private plan because he believes that health care is a right.
That could naturally evolve into a single-payer system in 10-15 years, he said.
& # 39; But it will be an evolution, not a revolution, & # 39; he said, smacking Sanders.
The Vermont senator has explicitly called for a political & # 39; revolution & # 39; which will serve the people instead of business interests.
He didn't stop talking to the press when he was on his way to an MSNBC hit a day before his own scheduled performance in the network debate phase on Wednesday afternoon.
In the spinroom, Hickenlooper said that Sanders & # 39; democratic socialist beliefs do not & # 39; The winning solution & # 39; and the word socialism generates a negative response, especially in swing states like North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
Hickenlooper had entered the media age to do a planned interview with a network. But journalists who watch early material swarmed the candidate who barely registers national polls and urgently needs a breakout moment to remain a viable candidate.
He denied that he was under any & # 39; pressure & # 39; stood to downplay the schism between the Democrats during the debates. On the contrary, he continued to play his own history of bridging the gap between left and right when he was governor of Colorado.
& # 39; We have always been able to bring people together and get the big progressive things done without socialism, & # 39; he said.
