Incumbent Gardner, 46, is a Republican from Yuma. Hickenlooper, 68, is a Democrat and the former governor, Denver mayor and 2020 presidential candidate. Theirs is one of the most closely watched Senate races in the country, as the outcome could help determine the balance of power at the federal level.
Gardner and Hickenlooper have debated twice to this point. The first debate was held in Pueblo last week, streamed online to a few thousand viewers. The candidates also met at Telemundo’s studio in Denver, with the entire contest dubbed into Spanish when it aired Tuesday.
A final debate will be held Tuesday in Fort Collins, hosted by 9NEWS and several other outlets.
