WATCH: Will Gardner Hold Trump Accountable for Attacking Colorado’s Secure Vote-By-Mail System?
REMINDER: Gardner Opposes Expanding Vote-By-Mail Nationwide
Denver, CO – Today, President Trump without evidence, claimed mail-in ballots were rife with fraud and singled out Colorado’s model system as “not good,” despite Colorado’s elections being safe, secure, and contributing to some of the highest voter turnout in the country. But instead of standing up for Colorado, Senator Cory Gardner has refused to condemn Trump’s attacks.
As states like Wisconsin faced the “most dangerous election ever” and Georgia faced a “disastrous” primary amid the coronavirus, Gardner continues to stand by Trump’s side in opposing nationwide vote-by-mail legislation. Explaining the Republican opposition to voting-by-mail, Trump said the quiet part out loud: “you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again.”
Colorado Democratic Party Spokesperson Eli Rosen:
“Senator Gardner is standing willfully by President Trump as he attacks Colorado’s safe, secure, and democratic vote-by-mail system. And we know why Gardner and Trump refuse to support expanding voting rights nationwide: ‘you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again.’ Why won’t Gardner just say it?”
