Voters went to the polls Tuesday in Colorado, Utah and Oklahoma. In Colorado’s Senate Democratic primary, former governor and presidential candidate John Hickenlooper defeated Andrew Romanoff, Colorado’s former House speaker. Hickenlooper won almost 60% of the vote and will now face Republican Senator Cory Gardner in November. Colorado saw a major upset in one of its Republican congressional primaries. Gun rights activist Lauren Boebert defeated five-time Republican Congressmember Scott Tipton, who had been endorsed by President Trump. Boebert owns a restaurant called Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, where she encourages her staff to openly carry their guns while working. In Utah, the Republican primary for governor remains too close to call. Spencer Cox has a narrow lead over former Governor Jon Huntsman. And in Oklahoma, voters narrowly approved a measure to extend Medicaid to 200,000 low-income adults, making Oklahoma the fifth state to approve such a ballot measure.
