The White House was just notified — he is quitting and there’s nothing that can stop him. The news is spreading like wildfire nationwide.
After gaining no traction whatsoever, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has dropped out of the crowded Democratic primary for president. He is now strongly considering a run for U.S. Senate in his home state.

He continued: “I’ve heard from so many Coloradans who want me to run for the United States Senate. They remind me how much is at stake for our country and our state. I intend to give that some serious thought.”
Considering that Hickenlooper is a strong favorite to win the state’s Democratic primary for Senate — he is currently polling at 61-percent — it’s basically a foregone conclusion that he’s about to jump into the race.
