John Hickenlooper

Colorado

Senate

John Hickenlooper is contesting for the Senate seat in Colorado against Cory Gardner (R).


John Wright Hickenlooper Jr. (born February 7, 1952) is an

American politician, businessman, and petroleum geologist who

was the 42nd governor of Colorado from 2011 to 2019. In 2019,

Hickenlooper campaigned for the 2020 Democratic nomination for

the president of the United States but dropped out before any

primaries were held.


Born in Narberth, Pennsylvania, Hickenlooper is a graduate of

Wesleyan University. After his career as a geologist, he began a

career in business in 1988, co-founding the Wynkoop Brewing

Company in Denver. Hickenlooper was elected the 43rd mayor of

Denver in 2003, serving two terms, until 2011.


As Colorado governor, Hickenlooper saw bipartisan approval. He achieved economic growth in both the metro area and the Republican-dominated suburbs and rural counties of Colorado. During his tenure, the state went from 40th in job creation to 4th. He accomplished Medicaid expansion, infrastructure growth, reductions in state regulations and a balanced budget. He is considered a pro-business Democrat and a strong supporter of the oil and gas industry.


According to the latest polls, Hickenlooper is currently leading Cory Gardner by 11 percentage points. He currently has about 64% of the cash on hand versus his opponent.
