John Hickenlooper formally announced Thursday he would drop out of the 2020 presidential race, but he has not yet committed to running in Colorado's U.S. Senate race in an attempt to be the Democratic nominee who will face Republican Sen. "They remind me how much is at stake for our country". But he said he could not return to the "corn dogs and Ferris wheels" at traditional campaign events such as the Iowa State Fair, which he skipped after the massacre, given the serious issues facing the country. "I don't think I'm cut out for that", he said. Beto O'Rourke has also been pushed to leave the race and challenge Sen. He won two terms as governor during Republican wave years and also served as the mayor of Denver after his startup days as a geologist and brewpub businessman.
John Hickenlooper has dropped out of the race for the White House.
Shortly before taking his first trip to Iowa as a candidate, Hickenlooper, who became a multimillionaire founding a series of brewpubs, balked at calling himself a capitalist on national television. Then, at a CNN town hall, he recounted how he once took his mother to see a pornographic movie.
Hickenlooper, 67, struggled to raise funding and his poll numbers as he pursued the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.
In July, he fired his campaign manager and communications director in an effort to revive his campaign, celebrating a poll that showed him at 2% as a major breakthrough.
He positioned himself as a common-sense candidate who couldn't be labeled a "socialist" by Republicans.
It turns out being a quiet, no-nonsense moderate in the crowded 2020 Democratic presidential field wasn't a viable pathway to victory - or even making it within seeing distance of the actual primaries and caucuses.

The deal sees THQ Nordic absorb the studio's 63 creative and technical staff along with all the company's intellectual properties. At this point in the current hardware cycle though, I imagine any potential new game would arrive for next-generation consoles.
Computer issues for US Customs impact some flights arriving in San Diego
Passengers who arrive on global flights will have to be processed manually until the issue is resolved. Earlier, an announcement at Dulles International Airport Friday evening confirmed the computer issue.
It didn't help that, by Hickenlooper's own admission, he was a mediocre debater and an erratic public speaker. In the end, he couldn't even scrape together enough money for many of his trademark quirky ads, only launching one in which avid beer drinkers toast Mr. Hickenlooper by comparing him to favorite brews.
Hickenlooper said on Twitter that his campaign didn't have the outcome he was hoping for. Chuck Schumer, the top Democrat in the chamber, "Schumer made the point that if the governor were to run for the Senate, he would be a total hero". In Detroit, he warned that some elements in the Green New Deal, a proposal to deal with climate change, are so controversial that, by advocating them, Democrats "might as well FedEx the election to Donald Trump". But Biden remains in the lead in primary polls.
Hickenlooper, however, has previously shot down the potential for a Senate run, contending that he has no interest in the seat. Numerous national Democrats have encouraged Hickenlooper for months to end his longshot race for the presidency and run against Gardner instead.
Hickenlooper was considered to be one of the more moderate candidates running. Cory Gardner for the Senate seat. Last week, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold announced that she would not seek the party's nomination in that race.
He said he had been approached by Coloradans to run for the Senate. Go backwards with Clinton to Reagan to Carter to Roosevelt to Woodrow Wilson, all former governors who defeated incumbent presidents.
The 314 Action Fund, a political group that supports Democratic candidates with a background in science, technology, engineering and math, launched a campaign on Monday to "Draft Hickenlooper for Senate".
A source close to O'Rourke's campaign said he believes a Senate candidate can not win Texas without a Democratic presidential nominee who is also competitive in the state.
