DENVER (AP) — John Hickenlooper is expected to drop out of the Democratic presidential primary on Thursday.

It’s unclear whether Hickenlooper will now challenge Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, who is considered the country’s most vulnerable Republican senator.

End? When did he start? Bye, gurl. Who? I guess the anti-socialist rhetoric was a resounding success! Too bad Democrats aren't interested in choosing any of the few halfway moderate candidates.

He dropped out because the chance for a Hickenlooper to become president is even less than a Joey!!! :) Friends VoteRED I know they say don't ever judge a book by its cover, however, the term Mr. President Hickenlooper just does not sound right… it literally commands no respect. Good, he likes to hire illegals and one of them was a murderer before he ran back over the border! Hickenlooper you're a joke!

Another Dem bites the dust! Who? Who? Yeah he wouldn't win as Presdient so it's good he isn't going to proceed onto next debate See you in the US Senate sir Hickenlooper!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO What am I going to do with my 100,000 HICKENLOOPER 2020 tshirts?

AP: Women accuse opera legend Domingo of sexual harassmentWomen accusing opera legend Placido Domingo of sexual harassment describe similar m.o.: late night calls, career talk and requests for private meetings at his apartment or hotel room. His response below. Read more: Did he say that, basically, he’s had a very long career and social standards have changed over all those decades so if he was offensive *gasp* he was just a product of the times?! Typical. What a typical response. Burn it all down. I’m so sick of this. Oh brother 🤥🤥🤥 Time to retire, PlacidoDomingo

Finally Well there goes the young, hip, ethnically diverse, voter enthusiasm 🙄 One down how many to go? 'Bye 'bye Bozo. Awwwww shoot! Wait, who? more like John HickenLOSER Toodles! Hmmm President Hickenlooper ?

Who? Who? Goodbye breakfast cereal name man He never had a real chance... Nooooooooooooo And this guy was one of the few democrats that wasn’t an insane socialist- This is a good sign.. it means democrats are definitely going to nominate a Hugo Chavez type socialist .. which will help ensure President Trump’s re-election

He is a fantastic choice for a ca Uber position when Democrats win Great news! Now he can focus on that Senate seat, as he should’ve from the start. Congrats hickenlooper you are finally trending. You only gave away 90 percent as much as Bernie. Stingy and greedy. Go be a cnn analysis

What many of them should do. Take the senate. Bye bye 👋 There goes his campaign with overwhelming 1% support. Did not know he was running. I guess it's little things like that that say he's making the right choice. Hello Senate race Lol. Who? pouring out a lil raw fracking water tonite 4 u John Did he have one?

NO WAY! Now it's time for BetoORourke and GovernorBullock to follow and drop out and run for Senate. AnyoneButTrump2020 takebackthesenate VoteBlueNoMatterWho Who?

SethAbramson Hicken-who Who? Me to my wife: 'Hickenlooper's dropping out.' My wife: 'He hasn't already?' I imagine quite a number of couples have had this same conversation.

SuMoh7 I sure didn't want that right leaner as our president.

Every Dem presidential candidate would be better than what we have now. Greatly reducing the probability that there will ever be an interstate highway called “The Hickenlooper.” JeffyJFR Good. CoryGardner could use a replacement. Really well-written, informative story about a politician I should know more about but didn’t.

izzysroses And another one bites the dust... ❌ ❌ Announcement made over a PA in a Costco . Largest crowd he could find Support Romanoff2020 to defeat Cory Gardner and become Colorado Senator Who?

jeffgoldesq Senator? Who? Oh yea, that dbag. Who? And from now on he will be addressed as a 'Former presidential candidate' -- which admittedly has a good ring to it. Who? WBAP247NEWS Wow. Who saw that coming? who ? Good KTLA Who? JonLemire Who?

Yang!!! 👏👏👏 He is way better than most of them Good Expected as Democrats don't have time for moderates. Looper who 🧐🤔 Hickenlooper supporters if you are on Twitter. YangGang 👏🏼 And announce he’s running for The Senate seat currently occupied by Cory Gardner, I hope.

JeffyJFR First time I heard of him. We got Romanoff2020. All the rest should follow suit. Dems need new blood. Biden, no. Harris, def no. Bernie, next... and so on. Seriously, who else is out there? Oh man...whatever will we do? Who? He’s not qualified for the presidency, he can run for Congress or the Senate.

JeffyJFR WAIT !!!! This guy was running for President ? 🤔 KTLA And no one cares. Noooooo please don’t , you are right there

It’d be great if JoeBiden BetoORourke CoryBooker and PeteButtigieg would swiftly follow suit so we could get serious about what needs to happen in 2020. _Politics Who🤔 NOOOOOO 2_many_boomers Who? StrongScot DrewStandsUp not the great CO Gov! 😉 webertom1 Who? One less Jeb. DemocracyJourno ...and take down Gardner so we can begin to fix the country.


Who Made enough CASH End? It never started... Who? KNX1070 Because president Hickenlooper is completely ok! Good! Time to vote that little weasel Cory out i myself am thinking about quitting too. I have my film coming out next year. Who? Trump2020 Celeste_pewter I hope more of them do this! butnotEWarren Bye, Bye! BernieSanders2020

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 You was never in it boo. UMMMMMM.......WHO?!?!?! Who is he Well no kidding. No one saw that coming Oh, was he running for President? Who knew. If JohnHickenlooper leaves the race to go pick up a senate seat in Colorado, he’s an American hero. It could change the senate for a generation. Who Wise decision, sir.


Never heard of him He did a lot for Colorado and I supported his run for President, but running for the Senate is the best thing he could do at this time. DemocracyJourno Finally! He’s a great guy/I love him/run for senate/change the damn senate to get things done/move mitch out of there Too many problems with that last name

Genuinely good guy. Loved him on the daily show. Dude needs to make a difference in CO now I like him. Hope he runs for Senate. Out of money aNd no botes At least 10 more should follow suits especially those who are polling at 4% or less

Who? Who Condolences to the seven people who wanted him to win. Who? Who Wait... he was running for president? That was done before it began lol! Who? I'd he runs for Senate, I will donate

Didn’t realize he started a bid. Good for him. Me too. Helllllooooooooo SenateFloor senate bet he supports Bernie on the inside but won't outside. TheRealRevolution feelthebern NotMeUs takemoneyoutofpolitics Trump gonna run unopposed lmao. MAGA2020 Lol Finally some good news Awesome! Come back to Colorado and get rid of Gardener!!!


The story of the next 6 months will be Yang’s steady rise while the rest fade into the background YangGang Senator Hickenlooper. That’s what Colorado needs. Who? I pray Hickenlooper runs for the senate. I appreciate all his strides in CO and I think we need him as the senator from CO! Run, John, run! It usually takes Republicans 8 years for their failed economic policies to cause a recession..Trump is doing it in 4.

Let us remember the fallen. HungryForPowerGames JohnHickenlooper One down, many more to go. And to think we all though it ended months ago. I guess that’s what liberals call persistent.

Who I’m ending my bid, too. I think more people know me than Hickenlooper, so I expect Breaking News about me shortly. I probably was polling higher than him and Swalwell. I hope he runs for Senate now!! Welp.. Who? Who? who will inherit all of his supporters? 🤣🤣🤣 Thank you, sir!! Country over party!! Cc BilldeBlasio
