· Jun. 16, 2020, 2:29 pm

Democratic U.S. Senate candidates John Hickenlooper and Andrew Romanoff squared off Tuesday night in a 90-minute debate sponsored by CPR News, Denver 7 and The Denver Post.

It was their first — and only — one-on-one event to be held in person before the primary election ends on June 30.

Broadcasted live from Denver 7's studios, the last of three debates in the primary cycle was moderated by Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner, Denver 7 anchor Anne Trujillo and Post political reporter Justin Wingerter.

Mail ballots for the June 30 primary have been sent to voters this week. Hickenlooper and Romanoff are running in the primary to face Republican incumbent Sen. Cory Gardner in the November general election.

CPR News broadcasted the entire 90 minutes of debate and followed with 30 minutes of analysis with political scientist Seth Masket from the University of Denver. Watch video of the entire debate above.

FYI: post-debate analysis will only be available on the audio streams.
