    Former Democratic Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper dropped out of the presidential race to run for a Colorado Senate seat last week. He did this after he declared he was not "cut out" for the Senate. The Democratic Senate Campaign Committee (DSCC) threw its support behind Hickenlooper, another old white male, even though the party always screams out diversity. The endorsement sparked intense anger among the females running to unseat incumbent Republican Sen. Cory Gardener.

    Former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper dropped out the presidential race on August 15 after failing to make an impact. Rumors swirled the day before that he considered dropping out to run for the Senate even though he often stressed he is "not cut out to be a senator." That stance officially changed on Thursday. Hickenlooper announced his Senate campaign to unseat Republican Sen. Cory Gardner in 2020.

    Sen. Susan Collins (R) is seeking reelection in 2020, but there are some growing signs that it will not be an easy bid for the centrist Maine lawmaker.  Collins' waffling during the confirmation hearings of Justice Brett Kavanaugh won her few (if any) friends or admirers on either the right or the left. And now the Cook Political Report has moved Collins' 2020 Senate race from "leans Republican" to "toss up."

    In April, former Senators Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) and Joe Donnelly (D-IN) launched the One Country Project. They developed this project as an effort to help Democrats win back the Senate and White House in 2020.  The focus of the project is on rural America and its "forgotten" voters who turned out in droves for President Trump in 2016. They are now sounding the alarm and warning Democrats that winning the Senate in 2020 is an uphill battle.  And they're not wrong.

    Attorney General William Barr testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee over the way he handled Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report. We all know that the Democrats desperately wanted Mueller to find that President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russia and he obstructed justice. Mueller and his team found no collusion and punted on the obstruction charge.
