Nine of ten Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate spoke to picnic goers at Denver’s Barnum Park Sunday.

Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner was invited but did not attend. Here are a few photos from the event.

The nine Democratic candidates in attendance were: Dan Baer, Diana Bray, Ellen Burnes, Lorena Garcia, Mike Johnston, Alice Madden, Andrew Romanoff, Stephany Rose Spaulding, and John Walsh. Trish Zornio was not able to make the nonpartisan event, hosted by progressive groups, but sent a representative.
