For the second week running, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has found himself on a list of potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, this one compiled by D.C.-insider publication The Hill. And although the former geologist and brewpub pioneer maintains he’s taking no steps toward a run, he recently told a national radio audience that he’s open to considering it after he finishes his term as governor.

Election Day just 15 days off, Donald Trump was fighting to preserve his narrow path to the presidency in must-win Florida on Monday as Hillary Clinton tries to slam the door on her Republican opponent in New Hampshire. Trump's team concedes both publicly and privately that his electoral map is bleak. And GOP leaders are growing increasingly worried that his weak standing jeopardizes vulnerable Republican Senate candidates in battlegrounds like Florida, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania. The New York billionaire on Monday lashed out at the media, a regular target of his struggling campaign: "Media in the tank for Clinton but Trump will win!" he declared on Twitter.

But Pence and Kaine engaged in a good, spirited political fight that provided much more substance and entertainment value than the Trump-Clinton debate.
