Could Hickenlooper clear the field as Cory Gardner did in 2014? Not likely.
Just under six years ago, then U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner entered the 2014 U.S. Senate race and cleared the GOP field.
Now Colorado politicos wait expectantly to see if former Gov. John Hickenlooper will attempt the same feat on the Democratic side in the race to meet Gardner in 2020’s general election.
Unfortunately for Hickenlooper, it appears he won’t enjoy Gardner’s remarkably smooth path to his party’s nomination.
