Retire Gardner

Ballots will soon to be mailed to Coloradans and voters need to think about the Colorado race for U.S. Senate. Cory Gardner has failed Colorado on pandemic relief. And failed miserably.

Mr. Gardner said it would be “unfathomable” 111 days ago to go on recess without passing any additional pandemic aid. After a month-long recess, Gardner returned to Washington, but he and the Republicans are still without any comprehensive plan to help struggling Coloradoans.

The relief bill voted on in the Senate Sept. 11 failed because it falls way short of what is needed. But Mitch McConnell made sure the bill included a big subsidy for the coal industry which would’ve gotten $161 million dollars in aid if the bill had passed. And Cory Gardner is perfectly fine with that. Shortchange Coloradans who desperately need help and lavish a polluter with tens of millions of our tax dollars.

In line with Mr. Gardner’s pattern, he will not stand up to the leadership of his party. Truth, facts, evidence, don’t seem to matter to Mr. Gardner. Either that, or he is too weak to speak out for those of us who live in this state.

Cory Gardner’s time in the senate has passed. It’s time for him to be retired by the voters.
