REALITY CHECK: Gardner Is With Trump 100%, Prioritizes Party Over Colorado

Colorado Sentinel Editorial: “Six years ago, Gardener sold himself as a political moderate. He’s not. Despite his self-accolades, his Senate record show’s he’s one of President Donald Trump’s most reliable allies.”

Denver, CO – Senator Cory Gardner is once again up with a desperate and deceiving ad that hides his real record of being a partisan foot soldier for Mitch McConnell and standing with Donald Trump “100%.” Despite Coloradans pleading for Gardner to stay true to his 2016 commitment, Gardner caved to his party bosses and pledged to ram through Trump’s anti-ACA Supreme Court nominee days before the election.

Senator Michael Bennet responded to Gardner using him in the ad, saying he is “pleased once again to have the chance to reiterate my strong endorsement of John Hickenlooper.”

“Senator Gardner’s bipartisanship claims don’t hold water. Gardner has been a partisan warrior in Washington, working hand-in-glove with his party bosses to try to repeal the Affordable Care Act and now ram through an anti-choice and anti-health care Supreme Court nominee while failing to deliver needed COVID relief for Colorado families,” said Colorado Democratic Party spokesperson Eli Rosen. “But Senator Gardner is right about one thing — Coloradans do ‘believe in progress more than partisanship’ and that’s why we will be sending him and his Trump-McConnell rubber stamp packing and electing John Hickenlooper four weeks from today.”

Get the facts on Gardner’s partisan record: 

GARDNER IS “ONE OF PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S MOST RELIABLE ALLIES”

  • Endorsing John Hickenlooper this week, the Colorado Sentinel editorial board wrote that “Six years ago, Gardener sold himself as a political moderate. He’s not. Despite his self-accolades, his Senate record show’s he’s one of President Donald Trump’s most reliable allies” and has backed Trump on everything from health care to gun safety.
  • The Denver Post revoked their 2014 Gardner endorsement, stating that the endorsement was a “mistake” and that Gardner has become “precisely what we said in our endorsement he would not be: ‘a political time-server interested only in professional security.’”

GARDNER CHOSE TRUMP OVER COLORADO’S MILITARY COMMUNITY

  • Gardner voted three times to let Trump raid military construction funding for his border wall and broke his promise to protect funding for Colorado’s bases as Peterson Air Force Base lost $8 million. Gardner apparently didn’t lift a finger to protect the funding.
