Denver is out of the running for the 2020 Democratic National Convention.

The reason? Essentially: "It's not you. It's me."

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock's office says Denver backed out of its bid once dates were set, due to conflicts with events already on the calendar. They withdrew from the running on Tuesday, a spokesperson told 9NEWS.

The DNC is schedule for July 13-16

Politico is reporting Denver had made the short list.

As you may recall, Denver hosted the DNC just 10 years ago, when then-Senator Barack Obama was nominated for president.
