DENVER -- Gov. John Hickenlooper is presiding over a house divided in the swing state of Colorado. He knows it, and he called it one of the biggest reasons to get excited about the first presidential debate of 2012 taking place right here.

"The amazing thing about Colorado is the we are exactly evenly divided -- one third democrat, one third republican and one third independent," Hickenlooper said. "A great number of people here in Colorado they are not so partisan."

Hickenlooper said that's not all that's unique about Coloradans. Find out the details of that statement in the Democrat's on camera interview with our Chris Jose above.
