Courtesy New Hampshire Democrats, here’s Vice President Mike Pence on an airport whistlestop in the Granite State cheering on Republican Senate candidate Corky Messner–except he dropped one crucial letter to come up with another GOP Senate contender’s first name:
And he didn’t just do it once, he did it twice!
Understandable — both Corky Messner and Cory Gardner are Colorado Republicans who oppose the ACA and would gut protections for pre-existing conditions. And both will lose their Senate races in 13 days. #NHPolitics #COPolitics pic.twitter.com/NEZJ1smNfC

Polling in the New Hampshire U.S. Senate race has incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen leading Corky Messner by double-digit numbers, similar to the lead presently enjoyed by Colorado Democratic U.S. Senate candidate John Hickenlooper over Republican Sen. Cory Gardner–so in this respect we suppose it’s also easy to get Corky Messner and Cory Gardner confused. Then again, Pence was saying something in the second clip about a “renewed Republican Senate majority,” which tells us Pence is paying about as much attention to how these Senate are unfolding as the Trump administration paid a certain nasty virus last winter.
For Corky and Cory, Pence is just adding a smidge of insult to the injury.
