it's important as a team we hold ourselves to a higher standard. >> since the start of the football season the rockies figured they put up pigskin kind of numbers. they scored 14 friday night against arizona. last night they didn't have quite as much firepower. but arizona did, at least right off the bat. six runs in the first three innings against tyler chatwood. jake lamb made it 6-0. the rockies lose. >> the final score 9-4. the bad news for the rapids. th the good for the rapids, they always bounce back with a win. well, not always. back-to-back setbacks. it finally happened. colorado lost to the revolution. the final was 2-0. stay with us.

as an avenue if this was the path we started to go down as a country? >> again, i am not a lawyer. i am the -- >> you have one, though. you have a few. >> yeah. but i think the, a, i think it's unlikely giving all the polling we have seen that donald trump is going to be the next president. but if he is, i think it's unlikely he would try something like that. >> difficult and expensive, probably. >> right. >> would you want to stop that from happening? >> of course. i mean, as i said, i spent the majority of my time as on the economy, trying to maintain the great momentum we have in colorado. this is the kind of thing that would not only disrupt the momentum in colorado, but for the entire country. i certainly would try to push back every way i could. if there were legal avenues, i would explore them. >> both donald trump and hillary clinton told me they support the concept that local government should have the right to block or control fracking, if that's what the voters want. trump's campaign has back
8:52 am
does that make trump the better candidate for the oil and gas industry? >> i don't know. i think if you are in the oil and gas industry and someone like donald trump gets elected -- he is so impulsive. he can't make up his mind one day to the next what his real commitment is or what his real policy is. that kind of uncertainty is the anthesis, the opposite of that every business needs to be successful. even though he may be a little bit hard to say where he is on almost anything. >> do you think he's a little bit better on fracking? >> i haven't heard it yet. maybe he is. from his comments when he was here before, he supported -- you know, he wanted full control. well, that's close to identical of what bernie sanders and hillary clinton said. >> i got this question on twitter. it's a simple one. where is the aurora theater
8:53 am
you. i can tell you they are -- in terms of the legal cases that are pending, they are making him available. convicts from other states were perceived as being a danger to those around them if they stayed in the place where they committed their crimes. so states swapped these people all the time. again, the understanding is for the benefit of both sides we keep those we don't advertise them to the public. >> so just to be clear, you can't tell me because you don't know, or you can't tell me because you are not at liberty to share it? >> i am not at liberty to share it. >> prosecutors say the victims right act says you have to tell the families where the perpetrator is. how your administration interpreting that differently? >> i am not a lawyer. that's the first time someone has asked me that interpretation. i can find that out. >> okay. i would be interested to follow
8:54 am
i mean, philosophically, if you put yourself in the shoes of someone who lost a family member in a tragedy like that and they want to know for their own peace of mind where the person is, how do you tell them that not sharing this information is the right way to go? >> because i think the authorities -- people who are experts in these fields feel that letting people know where these, you know, criminals are puts not only them at risk, but the people around them is a higher level of safety on a whole number of leveled -- levels by making sure that they have whatever level of anonimity is reasonable. >> i am not going to go down 48 states. there are several victims in that theater shooting case who are interested to know whether he is in california. specifically because his family is there. are you able to tell me whether or not he is in that state? >> no. >> . >> your party's platform calls
8:55 am
recently $15 an hour. why not support the more modest number? >> there was no carve out for rural colorado. so when people are trying to harvest peaches or, you know, any of the agricultural harvests, they are on a thin edge of profitability. >> does 12 $12 make >> right. that was a compromise. >> i want to make sure my premise is right. you support the amendment that would make it harder to amend colorado's constitution? >> yes. >> you talked fondly about states being the laboratory of democracy. would that make us a less interesting lab? >> no, you can still do everything through the legislature. >> pot wouldn't have happened through the legislature, would it? >> well, pot would have passed
8:56 am
place. >> today to go to 35 state senate districts. >> sure. absolutely. >> you don't think it's an undue burden? >> no, i don't think so. >> you are on record against amendment 69. the universal healthcare question. i wonder the reason for that. do you philosophically agree we don't need it or you don't lake the structure of this particular plan? >> i think we have put so much time and effort trying to get to and still have long way to go in terms coverage to cover all people that to take all that work and throw it out and start over again with a whole different work, a whole different structure would be frustrating if not impossible. i am certainly open to looking at extending more public healthcare. what that might look like if that's what -- there are certain places we are not getting the competition in our exchange that we want. >> you don't want to throw the private carriers out?
8:57 am
that? >> i am trying to figure out is there -- obviously, it's not working the way it is. i want to spend at least some serious time looking at are there ways to fix the system. >> do you view donald trump as a threat? >> yeah. i think donald trump is unstable and he, you know, changes his mind. he's impulsive based on what comes up. and i think that is threatening way. >> differently than you might have viewed, say, a mitt romney? >> completely differently. >> governor, thanks so much for your time. appreciate it as always. watch the rest of our half hour interview right now on 9news.com. we dive into renewable energy, homelessness and the troubles with denver's new airport train. for balance of power, i am
