“Did Bernie Sanders let down Progressives in Colorado?
Former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper has defeated former Colorado House speaker Andrew Romanoff in the Democratic race and will face GOP incumbent U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner in November.
The Associated Press called the race in Hickenlooper’s favor little more than 20 minutes after polls closed in the state’s all-mail election on Tuesday.
Shortly after polls closed at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday, statewide ballot reporting from the Colorado Secretary of State office showed Hickenlooper enjoying a lead of 60% to Romanoff’s 40% with more than 600,000 ballots cast.
