QUESTIONS FOR GARDNER: Gardner & McConnell to Confirm More Rigid Anti-Choice Judges Instead of Passing Urgent COVID Relief for Colorado

Denver, CO – After allowing emergency unemployment relief to expire and taking a month-long vacation to campaign, the U.S. Senate is finally headed back to Washington today.  But instead of working to pass COVID relief, the first thing on Mitch McConnell and Senator Cory Gardner’s agenda is jamming through *more* rigid anti-choice judges.

Here are five questions Gardner needs to answer as he finally heads back to Washington:

  1. Why have Gardner and the Senate GOP prioritized confirming rigid anti-choice judges ahead of delivering COVID relief for unemployed Coloradans, our local governments, hospitals and schools?
  2. 111 days ago, Gardner claimed it would be “unfathomable” for the Senate to go on recess without passing additional pandemic relief. What changed?
  3. Will Gardner stand up for Colorado’s brave service men and women and denounce Trump’s vile attacks on our veterans or continue to defend Trump’s disparaging comments?
  4. Since Gardner’s sham health care bill has been debunked six ways from Sunday, what is his plan for the 2.4 million Coloradans who could lose protections for their pre-existing conditions if the lawsuit he backs to repeal the ACA succeeds?
  5. After more evidence of corruption emerges, will Gardner finally call on Postmaster General DeJoy to step down, stand up for the integrity of our elections and protect USPS?
