After Failing to Deliver COVID Relief, Gardner Brings Fellow Trump-Enabler Lindsey Graham to Campaign in Colorado
Gardner campaigns with Trump’s “sidekick,” but suspiciously omits president from ads
Gardner also bringing racist Sen. Tom Cotton to campaign in Colorado
Denver, CO – After failing to deliver COVID relief and taking off for a month-long vacation, today Senator Cory Gardner welcomes his fellow President Trump enabler Senator Lindsey Graham to Colorado to campaign. Instead of working to extend emergency unemployment for the more than 300,000 Coloradans and pass funding for our local governments and underprepared schools, Gardner left Washington empty-handed to campaign with his Trump-allies, and is now “fac[ing] pressure” from Coloradans to deliver.
Gardner’s campaign event with Graham — the president’s “sidekick” and “most prominent” defender — shows there is “no daylight” between the vulnerable senator and the president, even as Gardner suspiciously hides Trump from all of his ads. Graham’s visit to boost Gardner’s flailing campaign comes less than a month after the staunch Trump defender headlined a fundraiser for Gardner and created a fundraiser video for the vulnerable Senator.
Gardner is also secretly campaigning with race-baiting and controversy-riddled Senator Tom Cotton, who said recently called slavery a “necessary evil” and encouraged silencing peaceful protestors with the aid of federal troops in an op-ed in the New York Times.
Colorado Democratic Party spokesperson Eli Rosen:
“Senator Gardner is busy catering to wealthy donors with his President Trump-enabling buddy Lindsey Graham while hundreds of thousands of Coloradans need him to be in Washington fighting for unemployment relief to put food on the table and funding for our local governments and underprepared schools. Again, Senator Gardner failed Coloradans in a time of need, showing he prioritizes his party and wealthy donors ahead of us.”
