Washington, D.C. — In response to Donald Trump and Cory Gardner’s joint rally in Colorado Springs this evening, LCV Victory Fund issued the following statement from SVP for Campaigns Pete Maysmith:

“Donald Trump and Cory Gardner are one in the same. Trump and Gardner’s speeches take place just miles from the site of the Waldo Canyon Fire, which was the most destructive fire in Colorado history, and against a backdrop of a growing climate crisis that the Trump administration and Gardner have exacerbated. Despite what Gardner may say in Colorado, his record in Washington shows he has worked with the Trump administration to dismantle the Environmental Protection Agency and make it harder to crack down on corporations that pollute our air. Instead of fighting for Coloradans and clean air, Gardner fought alongside Trump when he voted to give Big Oil $25 billion in tax benefits and let them drill on our public lands.

“Actions speak louder than words — Gardner and Trump have a long record of working together to benefit big corporate polluters instead of Colorado’s clean air, public lands, and way of life.”
