DENVER (AP) — John Hickenlooper's team has urged him to scrap his struggling presidential campaign and instead run for a Senate seat in his home state of Colorado. So far, the former governor has refused.
That's according to a Democrat familiar with the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal conversations.
Politico first reported the conversations between Hickenlooper and his team.
