A new ad campaign in Colorado’s Sixth Congressional District, one of the most competitive districts in the country, is highlighting Democratic candidate Morgan Carroll’s terrible record on national security. As readers know, Carroll has repeatedly stated her support of President Obama’s plan to close Gitmo and bring terrorists to Colorado. But, it’s worth noting that she’s standing by her man even after the San Berardino attack.
Just listen to the ad:
“Fourteen people died and 21 were hurt. The terrorist attack is the deadliest attack on U.S. soil since 9/11. The threat of terrorism has never been more serious, but Morgan Carroll wants to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay and bring terrorist detainees to Colorado.
“Just days after the deadliest terrorist attack since 9/11, Carroll told the Denver Post that she wanted Gitmo closed no matter what, even if that means dropping the most dangerous terrorists in the world in our backyard. These terrorists are the worst of the worst and they are responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans, but instead of acknowledging the threat that terrorism imposes to Colorado families, Morgan Carroll is more interested in playing politics with our national security….”
What’s worse is that she repeatedly lies about her position on this controversial issue. Carroll told told the Aurora Sentinel, “It is absurd to say that I, or anyone else, wants to bring terrorists to Colorado” despite previously telling the Denver Post she supports closing Gitmo. With so many Coloradans opposing this move, Colorado wants to know whose side Carroll is on. Does she stand for Colorado or for President Obama’s failed policies? And, why won’t she be honest with Colorado?
