Hickenlooper: $1 million available for re-election

DENVER (AP) - Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has more than $1 million available as he begins his re-election campaign.

Other Republicans hoping to face the governor are state Sen. Greg Brophy, Secretary of State Scott Gessler and former Rep. Tom Tancredo.
