A University of Denver professor has joined the field candidates seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner next year.
David Goldfischer filed his paperwork on Monday, adding his name to a Democratic field that had been shrinking since former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper joined the race.
Goldfischer is an associate professor at the university’s school of international studies.
Other Democratic candidates in the race include former state House Speaker Andrew Romanoff and university professor Stephany Rose Spaulding.
Four candidates have dropped out since Hickenlooper joined the race in August.
