DENVER — Less than 48 hours after former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper announced his 2020 presidential run, the campaign said it had raised more than $1 million.

On Wednesday, the campaign said it had reached the milestone. He is one of just four Democratic primary candidates to reach that level of support that early.

The donations came from all 50 states. The campaign is not accepting corporate PAC money.

“The surge of support and enthusiasm for the Governor is clear,” said Finance Director Dan Sorenson. “Gov. Hickenlooper’s record of bringing people together and delivering real results on health care, climate, and gun reform is resonating across the country.”

In his presidential bid announcement, Hickenlooper said he hopes to repair the damage done to the country by the current administration and to bring people together for a progressive change.

The Hickenlooper campaign will hold its kick-off rally Thursday starting at 5 p.m. at Civic Center Park in Denver. People interested in attending are asked to RSVP by clicking here.
