Presidential candidate John Hickenlooper has long cast himself as a pro-business Democrat.
The former Colorado governor hopes he can strike a balance between pushing for liberal policy goals and stressing the importance of job growth as he tries to defeat President Donald Trump next year.
Hickenlooper, who served two terms as governor from 2011 until January, launched his presidential bid on Monday. In a video accompanying his campaign launch, he pointed to accomplishments on liberal priorities such as fighting climate change and tightening gun laws.

Running against several candidates who have fully embraced a brand of liberal populism, Hickenlooper sees a lane to cast himself as a pragmatist. In an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday, he cast himself as a candidate who can cooperate with Republicans.
"I believe that not only can I beat Donald Trump, but that I am the person that can bring people together on the other side and actually get stuff done," he told the network.
