Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Bob Casey, Jr. (D. PA) in support of former Governor John Hickenlooper’s (D. CO) U.S. Senate campaign:
Coloradans are wondering if they'll lose their health care, Social Security, and jobs under President Trump, but last night at a Trump rally in Colorado Springs, U.S. Senator Cory Gardner praised Trump's record as “simply astounding.”
Senator Gardner is “all-in with Trump,” but the people of Colorado know that we can’t afford another four years of Donald Trump — just like we can’t afford another two years of a Senate Republican majority. The stakes are too high.
At a time when we desperately need more real leaders in the Senate who will stand up for our values — not the President's corporate agenda — John Hickenlooper's campaign to defeat Cory Gardner has become one of the most important races in the country.
President Trump came to Colorado last night for one simple reason: to “get Cory Gardner across that line because he's been with us 100%.”
President Trump knows that his agenda and Republican control of the Senate are both riding on this race — and that John Hickenlooper has a real shot of winning with your help.
John won in both 2010 and 2014, two of the toughest years for Democrats in recent history. As Governor, he went on to boost Colorado's economy, oversaw Medicaid expansion to make sure more families had access to health care, and supported common-sense gun reform to keep Coloradans safe.
President Trump and national Republicans know John is a real threat to their corporate agenda. That's why the President came to Colorado last night and why his dark money allies will spend a fortune to stop John's momentum.
John Hickenlooper needs our help right now to defeat President Trump, Senator Gardner, and Senate Majority Leader McConnell. Chip in now to help John fight for Colorado and build a Democratic majority in the Senate.
