Andrew Romanoff, a staunch progressive who has championed policies such as the Green New Deal, on Saturday claimed victory over former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper in the state's Democratic Senate caucuses.
Romanoff made the declaration with reported results showing him earning 55 percent of the raw vote and Hickenlooper with just 31 percent, the Denver Post reported. The Colorado Democratic Party has said that 55 of the state's 64 counties have reported results.

This is HUGE upset of the party favorite John Hickenlooper by far leftist Green New Dealer Andrew Romanoff.
Maybe not surprising since Comrade Sanders also won the state-wide presidential primary election for the Democrats; still, this is a major upset of the party favorite, and it basically indicates that the far leftists and bernie bots flooded the Democrat caucuses.
Now the Dems will have to have a state-wide primary runoff election between these two, and we can only hope and pray that Romanoff wins, because he's an anti-fracking, anti-drilling, anti-energy extremist in a state that gets massive amounts of revenue and taxes from energy production, as well as provides hundreds of thousands of jobs, so incumbent Republican Senator Cory Gardner would have a MUCH better chance of re-election against the avowed extremist ...
Hickenlooper sucks. This guy sounds worse.
Gardner actually stands a chance of being re-elected now.
At least we know where they stand, unlike pricks like Romney and Collins with an R after their name.
Seems like a "winning" strategy for the Left: choose an extremist in the primaries and lose in the generals.
Not yet theres a runoff.
What’s the betting pool on the number of thumb-drives they’ll find this week? I say 44.
Poor lil chickenpooper, he fell go boom.
The DNC marching drill. Left, left, left left left.
Geez. Romanoff has been the Harold Stassen of Colorado politics. Too funny.
Seems like CO Dems have a caucus to qualify for the primary ballot. Weird system.
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
“This is HUGE upset of the party favorite John Hickenlooper by far leftist Green New Dealer Andrew Romanoff.”
There will still be a primary and Hickenlooper will still win.
Don’t count on Romanoff being an easy target. He’s very smooth. I know people in the oil and gas business who have met him and came away thinking he was a “reasonable” guy.
I ignore his emails and won’t give him $ but will hold my nose and vote for him.
I would love to see Chickenpooper replaced on the ticket with a Socialist. Gardner would have a much easier chance of holding the seat if he can just find the nerve to go on the attack.
However, don’t be surprised to see the Dems trot out a bunch of questionable ballot boxes to steal the nomination. They’re Democrats. Cheating is in their DNA.
Really? Hickenlooper isnt satisfied with being governor and must now stick his snout back into the public trough as a state senator?
That’s the best that can be done in that situation.
There’s way more dough to be mined in Wash DC than any state capitol, save perhaps Sacramento and Albany.
Yes a much better deal $$$ than a mere state senator.
Get rid of Hickenchickenshitlooper.
