Colorado Dems Expand Communications Team to Hold Senator Cory Gardner Accountable in 2020

The Colorado Democratic Party today announced an expansion of its communications and rapid response operation to hold Senator Cory Gardner accountable going into 2020. CDP hired Alyssa Roberts as communications advisor, joining David Pourshoushtari on the communications team.

Roberts is a Colorado native with extensive experience in western politics, including serving as press secretary for Senator Michael Bennet’s successful 2016 reelection campaign, on the communications team for Senator Mark Udall, and as a Western Slope field organizer for Obama for America. During the 2018 election cycle, Roberts was national press secretary for the League of Conservation Voters and a communications advisor for Montana’s special congressional election. She also served as press secretary for Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico.

“Coloradans are fired up to replace Senator Gardner in 2020, and we’re excited to have Alyssa on board to double-down on our work holding Gardner accountable,” said Morgan Carroll, Chair of the Colorado Democratic Party. “With her deep understanding of Colorado and Senator Gardner’s shameful record in the U.S. Senate, Alyssa will help ensure Gardner can’t run away from his record of siding with Trump’s partisan and destructive agenda.”

“Senator Gardner said he would shake things up in Washington, but he’s proven to be nothing more than another partisan lackey for Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell,” said Roberts. “From voting to take away our access to health care to refusing to fight for our public lands, Coloradans can’t trust Cory Gardner to stand up for our communities. Control of the U.S. Senate runs through Colorado, and I’m eager to get to work.”
