Ever since refusing to meet with Judge Merrick Garland, whom President Obama nominated to replace Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has insisted his objection to Garland was about the process, not the person. In an interview last week, however, Gardner said his decision to block Garland was because he “disagreed with the selection.”
McConnell: Gardner Is Likely To Be “Key Vote” That Gets Supreme Court Nominee “Across the Finish Line”
In an email to supporters this morning, U.S. Senate leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky wrote that Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner will “likely be a key vote that gets [Trump’s Supreme Court] nominee across the finish line when she comes up for a vote.”
Hours after protesters gathered outside his Denver office Monday demanding that he hold his vote on a Supreme Court Justice to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) released a statement that he would vote to confirm a “qualified nominee” for the Supreme Court Justice put forward by Trump.
The Colorado Times Recorder is re-posting this piece, published on the four-year anniversary of Justice Antonin Scalia’s death, in light of the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
FACT CHECK: In Ad, Gardner Makes False Claim That He’s Trying to Protect People With Pre-Existing Conditions
In a political ad released this morning, U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) falsely claims that his legislation, introduced last month, will protect people with pre-existing conditions if Obamacare is repealed.
Almost exactly two years ago, a group of 16 activists from Colorado traveled over 1600 miles across the country to visit Senator Cory Gardner in his Washington D.C. office, and to urge him, face-to-face, to vote no on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. At the time, Gardner had already failed to address months of protests, calls, and actions from his constituents, begging him not to confirm someone who posed such a grave threat to our civil liberties.
Former Colorado Governor and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, during a tour of the Grizzly Creek Fire incident command center in Eagle last week, took a minute to lay out his U.S. Senate campaign platform on health care as he tries to unseat incumbent Sen. Cory Gardner.
It appears that some Colorado Republicans are presenting themselves as mask wearers on public communications platforms, but being less diligent in the real world.
Earlier this month the Senate Leadership Fund (SLF), a major source of funds for Republican U.S. Senate candidates, pledged $21 million in radio and television advertisements across five states to defend vulnerable Republican incumbent senators. Colorado was not one of those states.
