The liberal governor of Colorado has seen his fair share of hiccups since taking office not long ago.
But that’s to be expected when you’re an elected Democrat.
Check out the latest happenings in Jared Polis’s Colorado…
From Free Beacon:
The press office of Colorado governor Jared Polis asked two local media outlets to take down a negative story about the governor because he objected to the news service that wrote the piece.
The governor’s press office contacted both outlets asking them to take down a story headlined, “Polis creates ‘Office of Future of Work,’ third new taxpayer-funded office this year.” Polis’s office said it was not objecting to the story itself but to the organization that created it, claiming the entity was funded by the Koch brothers.
Colorado Gov. Jared Polis’ office put pressure on two small-town newspapers to take down an article that wasn’t favorable to the governor, but was accurate.

Polis has signed a bill that will hand Electoral College votes to the winner of the nationwide popular vote.
If all Democrat governors start doing this, it could definitely wind up being a problem for Republicans.
From Denver Post:
Gov. Jared Polis on Friday quietly signed a bill that pledges Colorado’s Electoral College votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote.
The National Popular Vote Act makes Colorado part of a multi-state compact — but it only takes effect if and when enough states join to control 270 electoral votes.
