MCCONNELL: Cory Gardner is “Key Vote” to Ram SCOTUS Nominee “Across the Finish”

Gardner caves to McConnell & breaks his 2016 commitment, putting protections for people with pre-existing conditions & reproductive rights at risk

Denver, CO – In a leaked fundraising email, Mitch McConnell boasted that Senator Cory Gardner was the “key vote” to ram President Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee “across the finish line.” Gardner — who was one of just two Republican holdouts who could have kept McConnell from having enough votes to rush a Trump nominee — initially followed McConnell’s playbook and dodged questions about the Court vacancy before he “flip-flopped” on his own 2016 commitment and caved to President Trump’s pressure. Gardner’s decision gets Trump just enough votes to rush through a likely right-wing justice.

Thanks to Gardner, protections for people with pre-existing conditions, reproductive rights, and so many other important issues are on the chopping block.

Gardner is pushing misleading claims on his partisan record on air despite the receipts showing he’s “one of the most partisan members of Congress,” voting with Trump 98% and McConnell 95% of the time.
