Former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, known as a pro-business leader who tries to bridge partisan differences, said he’ll join the large field of Democrats competing for the nomination to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.

In a campaign announcement video released on Monday, Hickenlooper presented himself as a Washington outsider capable of both confrontation and cooperation.
