Hickenlooper’s $2.1 million haul in the last three months is more than four times bigger than the amount raised by his closest rival.

Former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper is back on the campaign trail. After dropping out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, he is now one of a host of Democrats who hope to win the primary and then challenge Republican Cory Gardner for his U.S. Senate seat.

Hickenlooper stopped by Aspen Public Radio on Tuesday afternoon to talk with reporter Alex Hager about climate change, income inequality and more.

A third Democrat is bowing out of Colorado's crowded Democratic Senate primary after John Hickenlooper entered the race.

Former diplomat Dan Baer announced he was dropping out and endorsing Hickenlooper. He was one of the three top fundraisers among the dozen Democrats competing for the right to challenge Republican Sen. Cory Gardner next year. Now all three have left the race to make way for former governor Hickenlooper.

John Hickenlooper's Colorado Senate run has pushed another Democrat out of the party's crowded primary.

Former U.S. Attorney John Walsh announced Wednesday he was suspending his campaign for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Sen. Cory Gardner. Walsh endorsed Hickenlooper as the most electable Democrat in the field.
