Big props to U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner for all his hard work to bring the temporary Space Command headquarters to Peterson Air Force Base and reboot the military’s efforts against attacks on our satellites from countries like China and Russia. 

Gardner backed President Trump’s February directive for this continued expansion of military space organizations, and urged the Trump administration to establish the command in Colorado.

It was about nearly a month later before the rest of the Colorado delegation, including U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, followed Gardner’s lead and backed the effort.

So of course some media outlets here credited Bennet for the decision — like he and Trump are all of a sudden big buddies.

It’s an understandable mistake to forget that Bennet is actually challenging Trump for the presidency.

America keeps forgetting Bennet is running for president, too.

So welcome to Colorado, Space Command!

Now, where can we get the t-shirt?
