Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner continues to dodge questions about whether he will support the historic $3 trillion relief package that House Democrats passed last week, but the Republican slammed the HEROES Act in a recent interview on KOA radio, saying the bill was “focused on special pet political projects.”

Maine’s Endangered GOP Senator Criticizes Trump’s COVID Response, While Cory Gardner Continues Not To
While a growing number of Americans view the Trump administration’s handling of the COVID-19 outbreak as botched or delayed, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) continues to not criticize the president over his handling of the pandemic, instead even praising the Administration at times.
WASHINGTON– Lawmakers are searching for every possible avenue to combat the coronavirus pandemic, and some House Democrats, including Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO), are demanding the Trump administration lift restrictions on the use of human fetal tissue, mostly resulting from abortions, to help researchers develop medicines for COVID-19.
At the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday morning, supporters of overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling, which expanded abortion rights, defended a Louisiana law that, according to critics, effectively strips physicians from responsibly treating their patients and moves America one step closer to banning abortion outright.
In Washington D.C., dozens of proposed laws are withering in a “legislative graveyard” built and tended to by the “grim reaper” — a name given to Senate Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and one that he takes pride in.
William Perry Pendley is still leading the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the federal agency in charge of most public lands, and has spent the past few weeks rotating between Washington, DC, and the agency’s new headquarters in Grand Junction, Colo.
WASHINGTON DC– With climate change on the minds of voters across the country heading into the 2020 election, a U.S. House panel met Friday to debate a bill boosting technology that would trap and store carbon dioxide, the principal gas causing global warming, from major polluters like the transportation and industrial sectors.
WASHINGTON DC — Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos weighed in on a host of issues during the Colorado Christian University’s annual president’s dinner Wednesday night at the Museum of the Bible, at one point drawing comparisons of the abortion rights debate to the ending of slavery.
Since President Donald Trump took office, the number of inspectors tasked with ensuring the safety of drugs imported into the United States declined by more than 10 percent, leaving lawmakers to question the quality of imported prescription drugs, which account for about 40% of prescription drugs used in the U.S.
Again today, Gardner's office declined to answer questions from the Colorado Times Recorder about whether he'll vote to remove Trump from office -- or if he thinks it was appropriate for the White House to prevent administration officials from testifying before Congress.
