Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D. NY) in support of former Governor John Hickenlooper’s (D. CO) U.S. Senate campaign:
I just left Colorado, where I hit the campaign trail with my friend, John Hickenlooper.
And I’ve got to tell you: John can flip this Senate seat.
He’s up against Republican Senator Cory Gardner, one of Trump and McConnell’s most reliable yes-men, who votes with the president 98 percent of the time.
Politico calls Gardner the Senate’s most vulnerable Republican—this race is a toss-up. We can win back this seat—and our Senate majority—if we send John the resources he needs to win.
Click here to make a contribution to flip Colorado’s Senate seat and take back our majority. Your support will fuel John’s grassroots campaign, put boots on the ground in key districts across the state, and get his ads up on the air.
Coloradans, women, America, cannot afford another six years of Cory Gardner in the Senate. He’s co-sponsored legislation that would outlaw abortion, and has repeatedly voted to defund Planned Parenthood. And he’s in the back-pocket of the gun lobby, benefiting from nearly $4 million in NRA spending.
Please, join me in sending a clear message to Gardner—and to McConnell and Trump—that their days in Washington are numbered. Here’s the link to rush your donation: actblue.com/donate/ots_hickenlooper
P.S. John’s experience makes him a different kind of leader. He’s a geologist, brewer, and small business owner who served as Denver mayor and then governor of Colorado. True to his roots, we campaigned together at a small brewery in Denver. Take a look!
