John Hickenlooper introduces Lieutenant Governor choice Joseph Garcia as a "shredder"

A short time ago, Joseph Garcia was officially announced as John Hickenlooper's running mate for governor. But while the presumptive Democratic standard-bearer could have limited himself to praising Garcia's stint as president of Colorado State University-Pueblo, he branched out with the following quote retrieved by Westword's Johnny Molfetta, who was on the scene: "Joe Garcia is a hiker, a mountain biker and is a shredder on the snow board. He lives Colorado."

That location is a big bonus for Garcia as he jumps into the political arena. After all, if he lived in Delaware, it'd be a helluva commute. Page down below to see photos by Molfetta from today's press conference.
