🚨RATING CHANGE🚨: Cook Political Report Moves Colorado Senate Race Toward Hickenlooper
Gardner’s “flip flop” on SCOTUS seat — breaking his own standard — will “surely be at odds with many Colorado voters”
Even Gardner’s GOP colleagues say pushing a SCOTUS vote “probably isn’t good” for him
Denver, CO – This morning the Cook Political Report moved the Colorado Senate race to “Lean Democrat,” saying that Senator Cory Gardner’s decision to break his own 2016 standard and cave to President Trump’s pressure to ram through a Supreme Court nominee will “surely be at odds with many Colorado voters.”
Even Gardner’s GOP Senate colleagues and major GOP donors admit that his broken commitment to Coloradans on rushing a SCOTUS nominee through will “hurt” him and “probably isn’t good” for his already slim reelection chances.
This is the second nonpartisan rating change in September, with Politico moving Colorado’s senate race to “Lean Democrat” two weeks ago, writing that Hickenlooper “is consistently ahead of first-term GOP Sen. Cory Gardner.” The rating change comes just a week after a new poll that has Hickenlooper 10 points ahead of Gardner, whom Coloradans overwhelmingly believe is deceptive and prioritizes his loyalty to President Trump and his special interest donors ahead of standing up for our state.

Colorado Democratic Party spokesperson Eli Rosen:
“Senator Cory Gardner sold out Colorado yet again by breaking his own commitment to let voters have a say in the next Supreme Court Justice — who could overturn both Roe v. Wade and the Affordable Care Act. The stakes of this election could not be higher, and Coloradans are eager to vote Gardner out.”
