CO Democrats did not need to nominate Hickenlooper-D to defeat Gardner-R.

Romanoff-D is easily able to defeat Gardner-R in the November 2020 General Election.
Romanoff's major weakness is his performance in the 2014 US House Race in CO-6 against Republican incumbent Mike Coffman. Romanoff lost that race by an 8 percent margin. We can argue that 2014 was a Republican wave election year. CO-6 was a swing district. Romanoff's 2020 performance in CO-6 is going to be better than his 2014 performance in CO-6. The Democratic nominee for statewide elected office in CO does not need to carry CO-6 to win statewide in the November General Election. They just have to win big in CO-1,CO-2,and CO-7. Democratic primary voters in states that are less Democratic than CO has nominated more progressive generic candidates to challenge the Republican incumbents in their states.
Gideon-ME,Ossoff-GA, and Greenfield-IA. These 3 candidate are likely to win in November 2020 General Election.
Hickenlooper is the only incoming Democratic US Senator that is vulnerable to a Democratic primary challenge in 2026.
Hickenlooper is moderate Democrat from a state that turning into a safe Democratic state. The Democrats have a strong candidates to win in the primary and win in the general election.
Polis-D 2 term Governor of CO who can not seek another term for Governor of CO in 2026 due to term limits.
Griswold-D 2 term Secretary of State of CO who can not seek another term for Secretary of State of CO in 2026 due to term limits.
Neguse-D 4 term US House member from CO-2 cd.

1. At This Point Mickey Mouse Could Beat Gardner; Hick Polled as A Stronger Candidate During Primary

I don't get the logic that Hick will be vulnerable to a more progressive Dem challenger in 2026 when Romanoff couldn't beat him in 2020. He might be but that certainly wasn't the case in 2020. The 2020 political landscape is the most favorable Dems will probably ever have given the hatred for Trump and the failures of his Administration. I'm not sure the reception that any Dem will have in taking on a sitting Senator in 2026 regardless of their progressive bona fides.
