Vice President Mike Pence was in Colorado yesterday to fundraise for Senator Cory Gardner, the “most vulnerable Senate Republican” and the least popular Senate Republican with his base back home. But there was one key person missing from the event: Senator Cory Gardner. In the past, Gardner has proudly endorsed President Trump’s re-election, promised to campaign alongside him in 2020, and voted with the White House 99% of the time. Now, as the president’s approval continues to tank in Colorado, Gardner is trying to have it both ways, skipping appearances with Trump and Pence while continuing to vote in lockstep with their toxic agenda.
More here on Gardner’s conspicuous absence at his own campaign event:
9News’ Kyle Clark: “President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Defense successfully defended Senator Cory Gardner from an uncomfortable photo-op today. Gardner headed back to Washington to vote on that nomination rather than appear with Vice President Mike Pence in Windsor at a fundraiser for Gardner’s re-election.”
