    Sen. John Hickenlooper plans to participate in his first town hall since joining the U.S. Senate, his office announced.

    The virtual event is planned for April 14 at 6 p.m. Participants may join the town hall on Facebook, YouTube or Hickenlooper’s website. They may submit questions for the senator in advance through an online form or by calling 833-305-1728 during the event.

    The Democrat Hickenlooper, a former mayor of Denver and governor of Colorado, is the state’s junior senator. He won his seat in November after defeating Colorado’s previous junior senator, the one-term Republican Cory Gardner. The race was seen as crucial to the Democrats’ successful effort to flip the U.S. Senate to Democratic control.
