  • What it means for Colorado if Dems win the Senate and White House

    10/27/2020 7:06:37 AM PDT · by george76 · 8 replies
    U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner was asked what a U.S. Senate would look like if Democrats took control after the November election. Specifically, Fox News asked, what does a Senate ruled by presumptive Democrat Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York look like? Not so good for Colorado, Gardner responded. A ban on oil and gas, the destruction of hundreds of thousands of jobs in Colorado, massive tax increases, a regulatory overtake the likes of which we’ve never seen — it would undo the work that we did prior to the pandemic and building up our economy and prevent our economy...
  • Schweikart: What to Watch for on Election Night

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Guest Piece by America’s History Teacher, Larry Schweikart Confession: I rarely watch conservative, or so-called conservative, news sites. You can get some information that way, but I find it much more instructive to watch the reactions of liberals to the stories of the day. That is an instant indicator of who is winning and losing. For example, if the Washington Post says “Trump must change tone or face loss,” you know that Trump’s tone is deadly effective. Or, if Politico headlines “Some Senator Say McConnell Moving Too Fast on Barrett Nomination,” you know that Yertle is moving at light speed...
  • Senator Murkowski Backtracks on RBG Vacancy, Killing Democratic Hopes Of Blocking Trump's SCOTUS Nominee

    Total victory is upon us, folks. And some Republicans have managed to get on a path towards redemption with conservatives. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said he wouldn’t block the nominee. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) is a ‘no,’ but as we’ve said before—Maine is an oddball state. She gets a pass. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), a runner up in the biggest pain in the a** contest among the GOP, did initially say that she’s opposed to filling the Supreme Court vacancy left by Ruth Bade Ginsburg, but is now changing her tune. The last justice passed away last Friday making the...

    CBS Denver ^ | 09/21/2020 | Danielle Chavira
    Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner released a statement about his position on the U.S. Supreme Court vacancy left by the late-Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Gardner had avoided answering questions from journalists until Monday evening. “When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how to best fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent. I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect our Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 08/26/2020 | by Joel Gehrke, Foreign Affairs Reporter
    Congressional negotiators are considering whether NASA contracts awarded to Elon Musk's SpaceX represent a potential national security risk due to Chinese financial support for the billionaire owner's electric car company, Tesla. “What is there to stop them from going to Musk directly and saying, 'We'll call your line of credit early, unless you give us X, Y, or Z?'” said a congressional Republican aide involved in negotiations over the comprehensive legislation governing the space agency. “And, there's no real clarity that there's any kind of mechanism that would stop that other than good behavior by an individual.” The question underscores...
  • Trump To Withdraw Nomination Of Anti-Environmentalist As Public Lands Director

    Huffpost ^ | 8/15/20 | Hilary Hanson and Chris D’Angelo
    President Donald Trump will withdraw the nomination of William Perry Pendley as director of the Bureau of Land Management in the face of criticism over Pendley’s anti-environmentalist views and advocacy for selling off federal lands. A White House official confirmed the news Saturday, a day after Outdoor Life broke the story. The decision is almost certainly influenced by the awkward position in which Pendley’s nomination put Republican Sens. Cory Gardner (Colo.) and Steve Daines (Mont.) ― two close Trump allies facing tough reelection bids. Both earned rare points with the conservation community with the passage of a major public lands...

    Kanye West met with White House senior adviser Jared Kushner last weekend, according to a new report, after launching a presidential campaign that he has openly indicated was aimed at siphoning votes from Joe Biden. The artist announced a presidential campaign earlier this year that has faced significant legal battles amid reports of seemingly-identical signatures on petitions which West created for his name to appear on state ballots in the November election. He has received help from GOP operatives, and he reportedly “expressed comfort” with his campaign undermining the former vice president’s bid for the White House in a recent...

    Should political observers write off Senator Cory Gardner’s (R-CO)’s re-election prospects yet? Not so fast. New polling suggests he’s gaining on challenger John Hickenlooper. The junior senator, first elected to office in 2014, is confident he can beat the scandal-prone former presidential candidate and Colorado governor. On a recent episode of my podcast, District of Conservation, Senator Gardner discussed how the campaign is going and how the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA) will preserve our nation’s outdoor heritage.He said, “We have been able to take our message of accomplishment for the people of Colorado from corner to corner across our state, and I’m going to continue getting...

    A new poll released Wednesday by national Democratic-aligned groups shows former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper leading Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner by 11 percentage points — and the Democratic challenger holds a 19-point lead over the incumbent among self-described independent voters. The Public Policy Polling survey, commissioned by Hickenlooper endorsers End Citizens United and Let America Vote, found Hickenlooper with 51% support to Gardner's 40%, with 9% not sure.

    The Lincoln Project, a Republican super PAC, in a new ad slammed some of President Trump’s top GOP allies in the Senate, accusing a slate of Republican lawmakers of “cowardice” and “betrayal.” The ad, released Wednesday, states, “Someday soon, the time of Trump will pass. This circus of incompetence, corruption and cruelty will end. When it does, the men and women in Trump’s Republican Party will come to you, telling you they can repair the damage he’s done. They’ll beg you to forgive their votes to exonerate Trump from his crimes, ask you to forgive their silence, their cowardice and...

    The "Never Trump" coalition of Republicans fighting to oust President Trump from the White House is making a risky play, just as the president's lackluster poll numbers are raising concerns on the right -- they're going after Republican senators too. The effort is being led by The Lincoln Project, a media-savvy outfit that spends most of its time hammering the incumbent president with scathing TV and digital ads. But along with targeting Trump, The Lincoln Project is now weighing in on the races of GOP senators facing tough reelections this year. ... The spot characterizes Daines – who’s facing a...

    BS was the Deep State’s choice to run with the Monday narrative-setting piece. – The Democrat/Media/Deep State pressure campaign on several GOP senator related to the upcoming Senate trial of President Donald Trump continued to mount on Monday. CBS News became the chosen vessel to run with yet another story based on an anonymous “source” designed to pressure not only the Usual Suspects among the Republican caucus, but also to add to their numbers.

    The hopeful caveat comes right up front: This is a Democratic poll and there’s fully a year to go before Coloradans vote. But the caveat comes with its own caveat. An independent poll of the state conducted by Emerson in August found Gardner trailing John Hickenlooper by a similar margin. Emerson had it 53/40. Today’s Democratic poll has it 53/42. Normally it’d be implausible for any incumbent senator to trail by double digits in a swing state, but … Colorado’s not much of a swing state anymore. It’s blue enough that Hillary managed to win it in 2016 when virtually...

    Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, who supports abortion, announced Thursday that he will challenge pro-life Republican Sen. Cory Gardner in 2020. The announcement comes one week after he left the Democratic presidential race. “This morning, I’m announcing that I’m no longer running for President. While this campaign didn’t have the outcome we were hoping for, every moment has been worthwhile & I’m thankful to everyone who supported this campaign and our entire team,” he said on Twitter. “I’m running to give Colorado’s priorities and values a voice in Washington,” Hickenlooper wrote on his campaign website. “Right now we’re represented by...

    Well, that's the end of the road for presidential candidate John Hicklenlooper. But it's just the beginning for Senate candidate John Hickenlooper. The former Colorado governor gave it his best shot but never exceeded an average of 1 percent national support in his 2020 campaign. The press repeatedly asked him why he was running for the White House and not the Senate, where he could be much more influential, but he insisted Congress wasn't for him. “I’m not cut out to be a senator,” Hickenlooper said in February. “Senators don’t build teams. Senators sit and debate in small groups, which is...
