Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is expected to end his bid for the 2020 Democratic Presidential nomination after his campaign failed to pick up steam on a national level.
According to at least one report, Hickenlooper will drop out of the race Thursday, and is being encouraged instead to run against Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO).
“The former two-term Colorado governor, who ran as a moderate warning of the perils of extreme partisanship, struggled with fundraising and low polling numbers,” according to Associated Press. “His planned departure from the 2020 race was confirmed Wednesday night by a Democrat who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly before the announcement and spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity.”
Perhaps the most newsworthy event during his campaign was when Hickenlooper added his preferred pronouns to his Twitter bio, a social justice fad for which he was widely mocked by the political right.
