image for John Hickenlooper Mulling Ending Presidential Bid to Run for Senate

Senator Chuck Schumer, the minority leader, has spent months trying to recruit Mr. Hickenlooper to enter the contest to face Mr. Gardner.

Mr. Hickenlooper has pooh-poohed his interest in running for the Senate.

In February he told reporters in Iowa that he is “not cut out to be a senator.”.

Mr. Gardner is seeking a second term in office but faces headwinds in a state where President Trump is highly unpopular.

Democrats must win a net of three Republican-held Senate seats and win the White House to take control of the Senate.

Mr. Hickenlooper in recent weeks has seen an exodus of senior campaign aides, who advised him in the spring to end his presidential bid if his fund-raising and polling status did not improve by the end of July.

Mr. Johnston and Mr. Baer each raised more campaign funds for their Senate campaigns in the second quarter than Mr. Hickenlooper did for his presidential bid. »

Looking for quick fixes, Disney has subsequently shuttered much of Fox film’s development slate, intends to shrink its theatrical output and has ordered reboots of beloved Fox library titles for its direct-to-consumer platform, Disney Plus. »

Children who say hand dryers ‘hurt my ears’ are correct: A real-world study examining the loudness of automated hand dryers in public places

Authored by

Conclusion This study suggests that many hand dryers operate at levels far louder than their manufacturers claim and at levels that are clearly dangerous to children’s hearing.

The study was conducted in public washrooms with hand dryers in Alberta, Canada from December 2015 to February 2017.

When such locations had hand dryers, they were tested; on two occasions, hand dryers appeared to be malfunctioning and were not tested. »
