One Month Since Gardner Let Emergency Unemployment Expire & He’s On Vacation Campaigning With Controversial Right-Wing Agitators

This weekend Gardner campaigned with “racist” Kamala Harris birther theorist, QAnon supporter Lauren Boebert, Trump advisor pushing for “herd immunity” & Charlie Kirk

Denver, CO – It’s been a month since Senator Cory Gardner and Mitch McConnell let emergency unemployment benefits expire for more than 300,000 Coloradans relying on the lifeline to put food on the table and pay rent. Instead of extending unemployment relief and funding schools, COVID testing and local governments, Gardner took off for a month-long vacation and has been campaigning with a variety of controversial GOP agitators. 

This weekend, Gardner was spotted campaigning in front of hundreds of maskless people at a gun rally with QAnon conspiracy theorist Lauren Boebert and GOP Chair Ken Buck, who was wearing a “Kill ‘Em All, Let God Sort It Out” t-shirt. 

Gardner also spoke to hundreds of people indoors at a conservative summit alongside the “racist” Kamala Harris birther advocate John Eastman, a Trump advisor who is pushing the controversial “herd immunity” strategy — which would lead to more than 2 million American deaths — and notorious right-wing agitator Charlie Kirk.

Gardner reportedly questioned public health orders and attacked scientists in his remarks.

Colorado Democratic spokesperson Eli Rosen:

“It was ‘unfathomable’ that Senator Gardner failed to extend emergency unemployment benefits and took a month long vacation, and now he’s continuing to fail Colorado by attacking science and campaigning with racist right-wing agitators. Instead of fighting for Coloradans, Senator Gardner is on the campaign trail fanning the flames of division and boosting unfounded, racist conspiracies.”
