Sources have told The Associated Press that former Colorado Senator Gary Hart is seriously considering a challenge to Republican Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell.

Those Democratic sources requested anonymity when they said the two-time presidential candidate recently discussed a possible bid with national and state party leaders. Hart declined to comment on his prospects.

The 67-year-old Democrat flirted with entering the race in September but deferred when Congressman Mark Udall expressed interest. Udall ultimately decided not to challenge Campbell. Hart was the front-runner for the presidential nomination in 1988 but dropped out after being photographed in 1987 aboard a boat with model Donna Rice.
