GOP senator hides from constituents for 791 days straight

By Dan Desai Martin -January 20, 2020 5:00 PM

Colorado's Cory Gardner is considered one of the most vulnerable senators in the country facing reelection in 2020.

It has been nearly 800 days since Republican Sen. Cory Gardner held an in-person town hall with his Colorado constituents, with no indication he will hold one anytime soon.

Gardner is a top target of Democrats hoping to gain control of the Senate in 2020, and he is facing reelection in a state that backed Hillary Clinton in 2016 and elected Democrats to every statewide position in 2018.

According to the Colorado Times Recorder, Gardner last held a town hall on Nov. 20, 2017, which was 791 days ago. A Monday New York Times report noted Gardner has no upcoming town halls listed on his Facebook page.

Gardner is avoiding his constituents despite facing a high-profile reelection in roughly 10 months. Gardner's approval rating in the state is only 37%, with a slightly higher percentage of Coloradans disapproving of his job performance (40%), according to a recent Morning Consult poll. Gardner is regularly listed as one of the most vulnerable Republicans in the country.

Since he like's to hide, maybe someone can catch him the halls of the senate and and ask what he thinks of the fucking new rules that his party wants and that #Moscow Mitch wants for the "trial".......................

5. So many possibilities among Senate Republicans

Why if I didn't know better, I'd say that Senate Republicans were afraid of their constituents.

4. He's toast, I still can't even believe he won in 2014

That 2014 election was just a terrible night. Granted nowhere near 2016, but it was bad.

6. Thought it was Pat Toomey

Not only won't he face his constituents, you only get voicemail to leave a message no matter what office you call.
