U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner’s new ad highlighting one of his recent major accomplishments — funding the maintenance backlog of public lands — has John Hickenlooper’s campaign sputtering and railing against enjoying the great outdoors.
Hick’s Democrat operatives have finally come unglued, which is saying a lot since their key campaign strategy of the primary was to ignore a subpoena by the Ethics Commission.
Here’s their answer to Gardner’s public lands victory: Anyone who enjoys National Parks like Gardner is in league with the devil.
You’ve got to be kidding me.
Senator Gardner is going on vacation in his new TV ad as thousands of Colorado families are struggling to pay their bills.
He needs to be back in Washington working on COVID relief, not deceiving Coloradans about his toxic record.

Gardner fired back questioning Hickenlooper’s bizarre campaign against outdoor recreation and reminded voters of Hick’s illegal Maserati limo ride that got him into trouble with the Ethics Commission.
John Hickenlooper is now campaigning *against* outdoor recreation in Colorado. Maybe it’s just because he can’t figure out how to fit all this camping stuff into a Maserati. https://t.co/UzJKZ8M7O8

But Gardner wasn’t the only one to mock Hick. The replies just kept coming.
Joyride John @Hickenlooper – whose preferred method of travel is private jets paid for by corporate donors – wants you to know that @CoryGardner‘s bill supporting public lands and camping trips ⛺️ is “toxic.” https://t.co/6i2fklUwuk

Not everyone gets free trips on private jets like you illegally took as Governor. Public lands and national parks allow for low costs vacations most Colorado families can afford. https://t.co/XH6CG6RImD
