Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, who supports abortion, announced Thursday that he will challenge pro-life Republican Sen. Cory Gardner in 2020. The announcement comes one week after he left the Democratic presidential race.
This morning, Im announcing that Im no longer running for President. While this campaign didnt have the outcome we were hoping for, every moment has been worthwhile & Im thankful to everyone who supported this campaign and our entire team, he said on Twitter.
Im running to give Colorados priorities and values a voice in Washington, Hickenlooper wrote on his campaign website. Right now were represented by a senator who works to undo our progress by voting 99% of the time with Donald Trump and going along with Mitch McConnells obstruction and partisan political games.
Gardner has a 100% pro-life voting record voting to protect unborn children, stop infanticide and defund Planned Parenthood, the nations biggest abortion business.
Hickenlooper stands on the pro-abortion side so much so that he refused to investigate the Planned Parenthood abortion business after it was caught selling the body parts of aborted babies in Colorado and nationwide. In 2015, Hickenlooper said its a waste of taxpayer money to investigate the Denver-based Planned Parenthood abortion business caught selling aborted babies and their body parts.
From a news report:
Gov. John Hickenlooper defended a state review of Planned Parenthoods practices on Monday, but added that an additional investigation as some Republican lawmakers have called for would be unnecessary.
Last week Sen. Kevin Lundberg, R-Berthoud, pressed the states chief medical officer over allegations that the organization illegally sold fetal tissue. The governor, a Democrat, told Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner that its within lawmakers power to push the state to re-investigate the fetal tissue issue.
But he added, That being said, I think theyre wasting taxpayer money. I think that that efforts been done.

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) has been at the center of the scandal of the abortion company selling aborted babies and their body parts.
The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released two videos featuring the medical director of PPRM, Dr. Savita Ginde. In the first, Dr. Ginde tells the actors posing as buyers for a human biologics company that she wants to charge per tissue sample because that will bring in the most money. She said, I think the per-item [pricing] works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.
Then, in another video, Ginde says that they have to train abortion doctors how to properly perform second trimester abortions if they want to obtain salable organs for harvesting. She said, Wed have to do a little bit of training with the providers or something to make sure that they dont crush fetal organs.
As LifeNews previously reported, the abortionist goes on to explain that by classifying their work with organ harvesting as research they can get away with selling aborted babies. Ginde said, Putting it under research gives us a little bit of an overhang over the whole thing. If you have someone in a really anti state whos going to be doing this for you, theyre probably going to get caught.
The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2). Federal law also requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).
But Hickenlooper had no interest in holding Planned Parenthood accountable.
Alliance Defending Freedom authored a letter to Colorados governor, speaker of the house, and senate president asking for an investigation of Planned Parenthood and an immediate end to taxpayer funding of the abortion giant.
Hickenlooper has also employed Planned Parenthood activists. Lisa Changadveja, a former Planned Parenthood official was deputy field director for Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado during his successful gubernatorial campaign in 2010.
And he was part of a coalition of pro-abortion governors that sued President Trump over his decision to revoke $60 million of taxpayer funding for the abortion giant.
Praying for Cory Gardner.
This has been going on for about 3 weeks. Haven't seen one about abortion, but firearms, prescription drugs, I think something about oil or fracking.
A two-term Denver Mayor, two-term Colorado Governor vs. lukewarm never-Trumper Republican squish.
Better pray hard.
I expect Hickenlooper will win without a fight.
Hickenlooper won't even have to lift a finger.
Gardner didnt show up at Trumps Colorado rally right before the 2016 election.
It’s funny, the news keeps saying there are a lot of Democrats already running for that seat, but they won’t name any of them.
Like, who didn’t see this coming?
Colorado is a dead state. The leftist metastatic virus goes on. It was California “refugees” and pot utopia.
Gardner needs to be primaried.
Gardner can’t really be rescued I don’t think unless something structurally changes. However, it’s quite likely the Democrats will have a strident communist at the top of the ticket which could be the life vest that he needs.
Gardner needs to be primaried.
That is the correct answer and you were first with it.
