Election 2020 John Hickenlooper

Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper listens to a question during a media availability at the National Press Club,  June 13, 2019, in Washington.

Colorado’s John Hickenlooper can’t seem to get any respect.

The Democratic presidential candidate and former Colorado governor is in Miami for the first 2020 debates.

Scott Detrow, a NPR reporter covering the election, tweeted that Hicklenlooper was asked Wednesday by a security person, "Are you here to pick up press credentials?"

The former Colorado governor responded no, "I’m a candidate.”

In the spin room, Hickenlooper told ABC Political Director Rick Klein the mistake is “the story of my life. I’m just a humble brewer."

Hickenlooper gets the chance to get better name recognition Thursday night. He and Colorado rival Michael Bennet are in round two of the two-night debate.

Tonight’s first 10 candidates debate at 7 p.m. MDT on NBC, MSNBC, Telemundo, Twitter and YouTube.
