Senator-elect John Hickenlooper delivered his victory speech shortly after news organizations called the race in his favor. Hickenlooper unseated Republican Senator Cory Gardner in a state that has tilted further towards Democrats in recent years. He used his speech to assert that "people are saying it’s time to turn the page. It’s time for a different approach. It’s time to start solving problems and helping people. And that’s exactly what I intend to do. We’ve got to get Washington working for everyone.” Hickenlooper will be sworn in on January 3, 2021.
