Hickenlooper Giving “Serious Thought” To Senate Bid

The Washington Post reports:

Former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper withdrew from the contest for the Democratic presidential nomination on Thursday, announcing in a video that he is considering a run for Senate.

“I ran for president because this country is being ripped apart by politics and partisan games while our biggest problems go unsolved,” Hickenlooper said in the video, which was released Thursday afternoon. “Today, I’m ending my campaign for president. But I will never stop believing that America can only move forward when we work together.”

“People want to know what comes next for me,” he said. “I’ve heard from so many Coloradans who want me to run for the United States Senate. They remind me how much is at stake for our country and our state. I intend to give that some serious thought.”
