Senator Cory Gardner (R-Yuma) has consistently trailed Democrat John Hickenlooper in both polling and fundraising in their race for the U.S. Senate. Tonight, both candidates squared off in the final debate of the Colorado Senate race, and near the end of the hour-long discussion, Gardner stuck a stake in his own heart:
“Do you believe that President Trump is a moral and ethical man?”

Gardner had just finished talking about how he believes that Hickenlooper is not an ethical person, but he just couldn’t do it when the question came up about President Trump. Colorado voters DO NOT approve of Trump, who is trailing Democrat Joe Biden in Colorado by 14 points.
This wasn’t the moment that Cory Gardner lost the 2020 Senate race, but it certainly ends any lingering hope he might have had of making a comeback. Gardner is done.
