Coloradans Won’t Be Fooled
By endorsing Colorado Senate candidate Cory Gardner, The Denver Post threw its weight behind a man whose views and actions are in stark contrast with the paper’s previous editorial stances.
MoveOn.org Political Action teamed up with NARAL Pro-Choice America to run a full-page ad in Sunday’s Denver Post because Colorado voters deserve to know Cory Gardner’s true record, from voting to shut down the government to supporting a bill that would ban abortions to trying to block a law that would cut carbon pollution.
The Post’s endorsement has drawn criticism from national media for being misguided and prompted one former senator to call it the “worst political endorsement by a serious newspaper.”
Please share this ad on Facebook and tweet it @DenverPost using the hashtag #WhatWereYouThinking.

In a letter to The Denver Post, Chesser writes, “I am dumbfounded by your wrongheaded endorsement of Cory Gardner for Senate…This is a dangerous bet for Colorado and I urge you to reconsider your position.”
