Officials with Hickenlooper’s camp have not said if he will run for Senate. If he does, he will be part of a crowded field of Democratic hopefuls hoping to unseat Sen. Cory Gardner, Colorado’s junior senator, in the 2020 general election.

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet remains in the hunt for Democratic presidential nomination.
