BREAKING: Gardner Cowardly Caves To Trump & McConnell, Again, Breaking His 2016 Commitment for Partisan Political Gain
With Gardner’s announcement, Trump likely has votes to ram through SCOTUS nominee
Denver, CO – Senator Cory Gardner cowardly succumbed to the pressure of President Trump and Mitch McConnell and broke his own 2016 commitment that the “the president who is elected in November should be the one who makes this decision” on the next Supreme Court Justice.
Colorado Democratic Party chair Morgan Carroll:
“Senator Cory Gardner caved to his party bosses and broke his own standard — all in the name of partisan gain. Like always, Senator Gardner put President Trump ahead of Colorado, breaking his own standard from just four years ago. Come November, Coloradans will show Senator Gardner we prioritize a real independent leader in Washington — not one who is a puppet for their party bosses — and send Gardner packing.”
After refusing to comment repeatedly, refusing to answer questions, and “darting” from reporters, Gardner showed his true colors: he is just like Mitch McConnell, a man “without conviction” as the Denver Post editorial board wrote today.
