After dropping out of the 2020 presidential race, Hickenlooper announced his run for U.S. Senate in 2020 to unseat Republican Cory Gardner.[3] Although backed by the Democrat establishment, Hickenlooper faces a tough primary race, having lost the statewide precinct caucuses held in March 2020 to the much more progressive candidate Andrew Romanoff by a massive margin.[4]


A sexist, Hickenlooper made a demeaning comment about Democrat senator Kyrsten Sinema after forgetting the latter's name.[5]
