LITTLETON, Colorado — Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney criticized Colorado Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper as someone who "stands out for indecisiveness" during a rally in which Romney cheered on GOP candidates for governor and Congress.
Romney led the rally Monday afternoon at a high school in Littleton, outside Denver, and focused the majority of his comments on the deadlocked race for governor between Hickenlooper and former U.S. Rep. Bob Beauprez.
Romney blasted Hickenlooper for his decision to grant an indefinite stay of execution last year to Nathan Dunlap, who was convicted for the 1993 slayings of four people at an Aurora Chuck E. Cheese's.
Hickenlooper has said he doesn't believe it's the government's role to take people's lives.
The rally also featured U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, the GOP candidate running against Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Udall.
