The media might consider John Hickenlooper as the Democrat frontrunner to win the party’s primary to challenge U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, yet the candidate himself seems to have doubts.

Hickenlooper signaled his vulnerability within his own party by turning in thousands more signatures than required to petition his way onto the ballot waaaaaay early.

When asked about any plans to go the convention route, where Hick will need nearly a third of actual Democrats to support him, the failed presidential contender balked.

Hick told the Colorado Sun his “attention is focused elsewhere.”

“I don’t know,” Hickenlooper said. “We are worried about the signatures first. Talk to me about the caucuses next week.”

The caucuses actually start in about two weeks, so Hick might want to begin worrying about getting support for Democrats, uhm, now.
