Former Colorado Governor and current 2020 Democrat candidate John Hickenlooper warned his fellow Democrats to not stray too far left or appear socialist if they want to beat President Trump next year.

Hickenlooper made these comments during an appearance on NPR’s Morning Edition on Monday.

“If we don’t stand up and say that we Democrats don’t stand for socialism, we’re going to end up reelecting the worst president this country’s ever had,” he said.

Other statements include him cautioning his fellow candidates to put faith in the Green New Deal to ensure jobs or to eliminate private healthcare insurance:

“I don’t think we’re going to address climate change by guaranteeing every American a federal job, which is what part of the Green New Deal was. I don’t think we’re going to address the spiraling inflation in health care by forcibly telling 150 million people that we’re going to take away their private insurance. These are what a lot of Americans look at as facets or aspects of socialism.”

Per a RealClearPolitics poll average, Hickenlooper sits at 0.2%. Ouch.
