Where the Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate stand on key Colorado issues ahead of primary

Rivals John Hickenlooper and Andrew Romanoff are offering distinct choices for voters ahead of the June 30 election




Background: Colorado is home to many beautiful places, and each person seems to have a favorite go-to spot.


Depends on the time of the year

A: Hickenlooper often cites Telluride as his favorite place in Colorado with Aspen a close second. But asked this question more recently, he said the Eastern Plains and Morgan County are the best in the spring because of all the recently planted crops.




Mesa Verde

A: Mesa Verde in southwestern Colorado is Romanoff’s favorite spot. It was one of the first places he ever visited in that part of Colorado and it holds meaning for him. “It’s a very spiritual and beautiful spot,” he said.
