Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said Sunday "the vast majority of the problem with the campaign was me," but promised to stay in the Democratic presidential race and become a better candidate. That is despite calls from his own staff for him to exit the presidential race and run for Senate instead.

John Hickenlooper has refused to yield to pressure from his team to scrap his presidential campaign and instead run for a Senate seat in Colorado.

The former two-term Colorado governor is struggling to break through a crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates. He's in the bottom tier of polling, hasn't generated significant fundraising and is at risk of being eliminated from the fall debates.

Former Gov. John Hickenlooper is condemning socialism and making headlines for picking a fight on the issue with Bernie Sanders.

Sen. Michael Bennet is touting his plan to "clean up corruption and restore our democracy."

But both of Colorado's presidential candidates are still polling below 1% in some national polls ahead of Thursday's big Democratic primary debate in Miami.

Ramon Amoureux has been in the gun business for decades and through a lot of elections. And, as he knows well, his bottom line shifts with the political winds.

Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bennet said Monday he wants to commit $1 trillion for underwriting research and projects to address climate change, set aside about one-third of U.S. lands and ocean territory for conservation and reach net-zero U.S. emissions by midcentury.

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet announced his 2020 presidential bid on CBS This Morning on Thursday, calling himself an honest voice with a broad set of experiences that suit him well in a growing field of Democratic candidates. 

Bennet said he has two big reasons for running. One is a lack of economic mobility for most Americans and a second is the need to restore integrity to government.
