Colorado Dems Statement in Advance of VP Pence’s Visit
Colorado Democratic Party Chair Morgan Carroll released the following statement in advance of Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to Colorado for high-dollar, closed-door fundraisers that would benefit Senator Cory Gardner and President Donald Trump:
“It’s pretty clear that the GOP knows how unpopular and vulnerable Donald Trump is, which is why they’re sending Vice President Pence and other members of Team Trump for closed-door fundraisers for Senator Cory Gardner and Republicans instead of a public event. Make no mistake — between his tax giveaway to the ultra wealthy and his multiple attacks on Coloradans’ healthcare coverage, Donald Trump has done nothing to endear himself to Colorado since we rejected him in 2016, and perhaps these private fundraisers are a sign that they’ve finally given up their desperate attempt to turn our state red.
“Given Trump’s deep unpopularity in Colorado, it should come as no surprise that vulnerable Senator Cory Gardner is avoiding a public event with Trump’s VP. But hiding from a photo-op can’t erase Gardner’s record of staunch support of Trump’s divisive agenda, nor will it stop Coloradans from rejecting both Gardner and Trump in 2020.”
