John Hickenlooper and former House Speaker Andrew Romanoff, and the 3rd Congressional District race between Rep.

Colorado Politics asked the candidates in those races their views on a number of issues, including the state budget, the coronavirus pandemic response and — in the spirit of working together — a quality they admire in either their primary opponent or a member of the opposing party. Their responses, edited sparingly, are available in the list of stories below.

You'll see in some cases candidates have not filled out their questionnaire.
