Colorado Times Recorder: It’s Official: Gardner 2020 Campaign Kicks Off in DC With Leadership Luncheon
By Erik Maulbetsch | February 13, 2019

  • “Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner is officially running for re-election next year. His 2020 campaign will “kick off” Feb. 27 with a Washington, D.C. luncheon hosted by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), ‘benefiting the reelection campaign of Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO).’”
  • “In addition to musings that he might step down voluntarily, the first-term senator has drawn fire from his conservative base, including county party officials who have publicly called for a primary challenge to Gardner.”
  • “The presence of entire Senate Republican leadership team demonstrates the significance of Gardner’s seat. In addition to McConnell, the invitation lists all five other members of leadership: Majority Whip John Thune of South Dakota, Conference Chair John Barrasso of Wyoming, Senate Republican Policy Committee Chair Roy Blunt of Missouri, Vice Chair Joni Ernst of Iowa, and finally Sen. Todd Young (R-Indiana) who replaced Gardner as chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.”
  • “Tickets for the luncheon start at $500, but the suggested contributions amounts for individuals run up to the $5,600 maximum allowed by law. Donors who “max out” are considered to have joined Gardner’s ‘Executive Board,’ while a $2,700 check earns the contributor a ‘Season Pass.’”
  • Gardner’s campaign is offering unspecified ‘Benefit Packages’ with each of those high-dollar donations. The luncheon’s location is undisclosed.”
  • “A request for comment made to Gardner’s Washington office was not immediately returned.”
