Hickenlooper Defeats Romanoff In Colorado Democratic Senate Primary

Democrat Hickenlooper favored to win Colorado Senate primary despite stumbles

Hickenlooper, who made a brief run for the party's presidential nomination, had a tougher than expected primary contest against Andrew Romanoff, a former state House speaker who ran on a progressive agenda including Medicare for All and a Green New Deal.

John Hickenlooper on Tuesday won the Democratic primary to challenge Sen.

Former Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath won the Senate Democratic nomination, setting up a November contest against one of the most powerful political figures in the country, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. As of 10 p.m., the Colorado secretary of state was reporting was 59.83% of the votes for Hickenlooper and 40.17% for Romanoff. Hickenlooper is a moderate recruited by national Democrats who had a huge financial advantage in the race. His November opponent will be Democrat Abby Broyles, an attorney and former television reporter, who defeated three primary challengers. "I have never lost an election in this state, and I do not intend to lose it. Everything they've got they're going to throw at us because they can't defend Cory Gardner's record".

Although he served two terms as the state's governor, Hickenlooper had several stumbles in his Senate campaign. In a memo laying out his campaign's view of the general election, Chris Hansen, Gardner's general consultant, argued Hickenlooper emerged "bruised and battered" from the primary. "Cory Gardner, on the other hand, is an energetic, world-class campaigner who knows how to win a tough fight". Ben McAdams in Utah this fall.
