Hickenlooper Mulling Over Dropping Presidential Bid And Running For Senate

Via The Washington Examiner:

Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is considering ending his long shot presidential bid and running for the Senate instead.

 Hickenlooper drove around Iowa Friday night with 2020 rival Sen. Michael Bennet to discuss the potential decision, the New York Times reported.

The deliberation about a possible bid contradicts Hickenlooper’s earlier dismissal of a possible Senate run. In February, Hickenlooper said he was “not cut out to be a senator.”

“Senators don’t build teams. Senators sit and debate in small groups, which is important, right? But I’m not sure that’s my — I’m a doer. That’s what gives me joy,” he said at the time, telling reporters that he had been approached by Democratic leaders to challenge Republican Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner in 2020.
