Republican Senator Cory Gardner Pushes for No Recess Without COVID-19 Relief Bill


Gardner is believed to be one of the Republicans most likely to lose in November, as he will probably go against well-known ex-Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper at that time. He issued a flurry of tweets earlier Thursday saying that the Senate shouldn’t go on recess.

“Anyone who thinks now is the time to go on recess hasn’t been listening. Coloradans and Americans alike have sacrificed and are hurting,” tweeted Gardner, who mentioned many items he stated were crucial to take action on. Those include $500 billion in more local and state government assistance to pulling back rules on banks that seek to collaborate with medical marijuana enterprises.

Inside Elections with Nathan L. Gonzales shifted Gardner’s campaign grade to Tilt Democratic in April, making Gardner’s the only Republican seat presently estimated to go to the other party in November.

Assistance deliberations on ‘pause’

Gardner’s chamber has been in D.C. for almost three weeks, handling appointments and advancing bills to re-permit powers in the expired Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
