Editorial: Our endorsement of Cory Gardner was a mistake
The senator’s vote on border wall is a failure of leadership

We endorsed Sen. Cory Gardner in 2014 because we believed he’d be a statesman. We knew he’d be a conservative voice in Congress, to be certain, but we thought his voice would bring “fresh leadership, energy and ideas.”

We see now that was a mistake – consider this our resolution of disapproval.

Gardner has been too busy walking a political tight rope to be a leader. He has become precisely what we said in our endorsement he would not be: “a political time-server interested only in professional security.”

Gardner was not among the 12 Republicans who joined Democrats in rejecting President Donald Trump’s use of a national emergency


Cory Gardner votes to uphold Trump’s border emergency declaration; Michael Bennet votes to block it
Cory Gardner votes to keep helping Saudi Arabia in Yemen; Michael Bennet votes to stop

1. Gotta' love it!

More and more we are seeing someone speak out about the gutless followers of IQ45 as they realize that too many are being screwed over by this mis-administration!

2. Dear Denver Post. Ever hear the phrase "Too little, too late"?

Anyone with half an ounce of sense could have told you that Gardner was a shithead way back in 2014.

4. Does anyone ever give a shit who a newspaper endorses ?

Can you recall any person you have ever encountered decide on who they will vote for based on their local newspaper's endorsement? lol

5. A lot less factor than in decades past, surely, but still a factor, depending on the newspaper...

This won't help Gardner's reelection prospects because every Denver tv station will mention it as will all the statewide political blogs.

7. Definitely... Ballot initiatives usually get a thorough review, which I find helpful.
