Gardner Finally Accepts Hickenlooper’s Proposed Debates

Hickenlooper for Colorado released the following statement reacting to Senator Cory Gardner finally accepting the campaign’s proposed debates:

“The debate about the debates is finally over,” said Hickenlooper for Colorado campaign press secretary Ammar Moussa. “After more than a month of political games and stunts, Senator Cory Gardner has finally accepted the four debates we originally proposed over a month ago. In just a few weeks, Coloradans in every corner of the state, including Spanish speakers, will see the clear contrast between Senator Gardner’s cowardly silence about Donald Trump’s failed response to the Coronavirus and John’s record of leading Colorado out of crisis. And then Coloradans are going to vote Gardner out.”

See below for the debates Hickenlooper challenged Gardner to months ago, which are finally scheduled for this fall.

Hickenlooper Campaign Calls On Senator Gardner to Accept Statewide and Spanish-Language Debates

The Hickenlooper for Colorado Campaign is calling on Senator Cory Gardner to accept debates that will reach Coloradans in all four corners of the state, and in Spanish as well as English. Nearly one month ago, our campaign accepted the following invitations that Senator Gardner has not yet agreed to: 

-October 6th, 9th, or 16th in Denver, hosted by the Denver Post, Colorado Public Radio, and Denver7

-October 13th in Fort Collins, hosted by 9News in Denver, the Fort Collins Coloradoan, Colorado Politics, Rocky Mountain PBS, KRDO in Colorado Springs, KKCO and KJCT in Grand Junction, and KOBF in Four Corners

-And a date to be announced in October, hosted by Telemundo

“Coloradans, including those who speak Spanish and those who live in the Four Corners media market, deserve the opportunity to hear directly from the candidates running to represent them in the U.S. Senate,” said Hickenlooper for Colorado spokesperson Melissa Miller. “We call on Senator Gardner to accept these invitations because all four corners of Colorado deserve answers for his failure to stand up to President Trump and deliver the Coronavirus relief that families and small businesses so desperately need.”
