Letter to the editor: We must do what we can

What happened in the Senate impeachment trial sickened me, and I’m sure that others feel the same. Regardless of political party, it was abundantly clear to me that our current president committed blatant crimes and misdemeanors that not only are impeachable, but which threaten our national security. Luckily, Coloradans are in a pivotal place to replace Senator Gardner this November with a new Senator who is not on Trump’s bankroll. My pick is Andrew Romanoff, because of his prioritization of fighting climate change.

Whoever the candidate is, we have to remove Gardner. Although he bills himself as a “moderate”, Cory Gardner has voted alongside Trump 90% of the time. Gardner has decimated environmental protections, and voted to take away funding for housing for our military families to instead fund “the wall.”  Now he has voted to acquit a president who our founders would have removed from office immediately. It is also true that Trump and his PACs have paid thousands of dollars towards Gardner’s re-election campaign. I hope Colorado voters remember all the ways that Gardner has betrayed us and supported Trump when they vote for who will be our next senator.
