Denver Radio: Candidate Hickenlooper Quits KHOW Interview

Dan Caplis, KHOW
Democratic presidential candidate John Hickenlooper handed an interview over to a member of his staff after being asked about abortion during an interview he thought was only going to be about gun violence.

"Listen, I thought you wanted to talk about gun safety," Hickenlooper complained to KHOW 630 AM Denver radio host Dan Caplis, before telling him he'd only be giving him two more minutes to speak with him.

Caplis told Hickenlooper he'd been told by his staff that all topics were open for discussion, and accused Hickenlooper of attempting to escape after being asked a tough question.

"Two minutes, are you kidding me?" Caplis said. "I'm sorry sir, that's a joke. I ask you a tough question on abortion, which you refuse to answer directly, now you tell me you have two minutes."

The conversation quickly devolved into an argument over the agreed upon terms of the interview.
