From The Denver Post:

U.S. Senate candidate John Hickenlooper released his first television ad Sunday, an uplifting message titled “We’re Colorado” that touts the state’s economic resurgence during his time as governor and advocates for economic fairness.

Sitting on a porch outside his Denver home, the Democrat looks into the camera and, for 30 seconds, explains that Colorado had the best economy in the country when he left office last year. As Congress now tries to rebuild an economy ravaged by pandemic shutdowns, he says it should do so “from the bottom up.”

“Instead of handing out loans to big corporations, they should be helping small businesses stay in business,” Hickenlooper says in the ad. “Instead of insider deals, they should help families who are struggling.”

Hickenlooper will face Andrew Romanoff in a Democratic primary June 30. The winner will take on Sen. Cory Gardner, a Yuma Republican, in early November.
