    Hickenlooper drops out of presidential race and says he might run for Senate

    ormer Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper ended his presidential campaign on Thursday and said he was giving "serious thought" to a Senate bid.

    "Today, Iím ending my campaign for president," Hickenlooper announced in a video posted to Twitter. "But I will never stop believing that America can only move forward when we work together."

    Good for him. Hopefully at least a dozen others quickly follow suit.

    I look forward to him as the states Senator in 2121.

    Make that four.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Another person that had no business running in the first place.

    Let him go run for the senate and take Ryan, Bullock, Delaney, Bennett, and the other bottom feeders with him.

    Meh, I think he could have been a good choice, I always thought that governor's make a good pool to pull from when looking for President. And he was running more moderate than the others. But it's hard to generate the publicity. I hope the Dems pick someone good and don't give us another 4 years of Trump.

    Maybe those running who will not make the next debate should run for the Senate. The Dems only need 3 maybe 4 seats.

    If the Republicans flip back Alabama, the Democrats will need either four seats plus the Presidency, or a five seat for a straight majority without the WH, which is a very hard feat as things stand at the moment.

    Colorado and Maine are goners, but it's an uphill battle from there. The only other seats that will be competitive will be Arizona and perhaps North Carolina. However, in the event of an economic contraction, where the Republicans catch a bear market hot potato, seats like Iowa, Montana, Georgia, and even Texas open up.

    We could wind up with anywhere from two to eight competitive races, it just depends.

    I think Democrats should consider competing for every senate seat up this year. Alabama elected a democrat in 2017, and I think that it’s better to plenty of options on the table.
