Using Similar Attacks and Inflated Comparisons to Cuomo, Republicans Blast Dem Governors Nationwide on Covid Nursing Home Issues
Last week, Gov. Jared Polis (D-CO) was targeted by Republicans regarding COVID-19 deaths in Colorado’s nursing homes.
If he succeeds in his 2022 bid for re-election and carries out his full term, U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) would become the longest-tenured U.S. Senator in Colorado history. The Colorado GOP is looking to prevent that from happening.
