Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, left, and former state House speaker Andrew Romanoff get set for a debate in the studio of Denver7 in Denver on Tuesday, June 16, 2020. The debate, held ahead of the Democratic primary, was sponsored by The Denver Post, Colorado Public Radio News, Denver7 and the University of Denver’s Center on American Politics. The winner of the June 30 primary will go on to face incumbent Republican Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner in November’s general election.

The two Democrats who want to be Colorado's next US Senator faced off, in-person, Tuesday night. It was John Hickenlooper’s and Andrew Romanoff’s final debate before the primary. This podcast has been edited for time, but none of the candidate's answers were modified. You can also watch the 90-minute debate co-sponsored by CPR News at CPR.org.
