Democrats urge former Gov. John Hickenlooper to run against Republican Sen. Cory Gardner in Colorado; Peter Doocy reports from Des Moines, Iowa.
Former two-term Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, who recently announced the end of his long-shot bid for the White House, has decided to enter Colorado’s Senate Democratic primary, targeting first-term GOP Sen. Cory Gardner in the 2020 general election, according to a report.
The Denver Post cited unnamed sources late Wednesday who were familiar with the governor’s decision. Democrats are fighting to regain the majority in the Senate, which the GOP currently controls 53-47. Hickenlooper has not officially confirmed his decision to run but said he intended to “give the idea some serious thought” in released video announcing the end of his presidential campaign.
"People want to know what comes next for me. I’ve heard from so many Coloradans who want me to run for the United States Senate," Hickenlooper said in his video last week, addressing the speculation. "They remind me how much is at stake for our country. And our state."
