Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner’s annual Christmas party will take place at the historic Brown Palace Hotel in Denver this evening. The annual event is officially hosted by Project West PAC, a leadership political action committee chaired by Gardner.
In a recent Colorado Public Radio interview, host Ryan Warner told Gov.

And if we don’t get out the vote — and if we don’t turn in our ballots and vote for Republicans, then we’re going to get more the same. But it’s going to be right in our own backyard.”
