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.
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.
