After noting that Denver's mayor had vowed to cover any tickets collected during the delay -- a delay Fox attributed entirely to a new electronic voting system, with no mention of incompetent old employees -- Foxy anchors Alisyn Camerota and Kiran Chetry heaped praises on Hickenlooper. "He's my kind of mayor," sighed Camerota.
