Miranda Green for CNN:

“Colorado Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper said Thursday a new health care proposal he helped draft with Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican, should transcend politics, similar to the bipartisan efforts currently underway to help Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas.

“‘In a funny way, Hurricane Harvey, everyone down there is doing what they can. It’s bipartisan. It’s ‘trans-partisan.’ And that’s what the governor and I want to do with health care.'”

“Kasich and Hickenlooper have long had a close working relationship, even recently entertaining the idea of forming a unity presidential ticket to run for the White House in 2020, a source involved the discussions told CNN. Under this scenario, Kasich, a Republican, and Hickenlooper, a Democrat, would run as independents with Kasich at the top of the ticket, said the source, who cautioned it had only been casually talked about.”
