Gardner Caught Powdering His Nose for TV Ad As Coloradans Are “Struggling So Much” After His Failure to Deliver COVID Relief

Small Business Owner: “Get your act together. Stop being stupid. I got to admit that I’ve reached the point of being angry with the way things are being handled.”

Denver, CO – After Senator Cory Gardner failed to deliver COVID relief for Coloradans depending on emergency unemployment insurance, our local and state governments, and underprepared schools, struggling Coloradans are demanding action. 

Gardner is on a month-long vacation after failing to get anything done in Washington, but CPR reports that Coloradans like Kelly DeVries, a small gift shop owner in Northern Colorado, want politicians like Gardner to know about her day-to-day challenges: “I was just hoping that maybe it gets to them, though, you know, and in some way they see that we’re all struggling so much.” Peter Pronko, a jewelry store owner in Wellington, pushed on Gardner and Congress harder, saying “Get your act together. Stop being stupid. I got to admit that I’ve reached the point of being angry with the way things are being handled.”

But instead of working for Colorado’s small businesses, families, and schools, Gardner was caught getting his nose powdered and posing for his next deceiving campaign ad. 

It has been 93 days since Gardner said recess would be “unfathomable” and despite local leaders, workers, and veterans decrying his inaction, Gardner is once again failing to deliver for Colorado. 

Colorado Democratic Party spokesperson Eli Rosen: 

“Coloradans are struggling and crying out for help and instead of taking action, Senator Gardner is too busy shooting the next misleading TV ad for his campaign. Coloradans deserve a Senator who will fight for them, not one who hides when we need him most.”
