Nine months after joining the race, Andrew’s last remaining Democratic opponent has agreed to debate. Their first bout: Tuesday, June 9—the first day ballots arrive.
Voters will finally get a chance to compare the two candidates, side by side. Here are some of the key differences:
🌎 CLIMATE ACTION
Andrew supports the Green New Deal
, prizes public health and the environment, and refuses to accept contributions from the fossil fuel industry.
Hick opposes the Green New Deal, sued communities that tried to restrict fracking, and has taken a quarter of a million dollars from the fossil fuel industry throughout his career.
💥 GUN VIOLENCE
Andrew fought the gun lobby, earned an F from the NRA, and supports strong measures to prevent gun violence
Hick blamed his staff for making him sign a ban on high-capacity magazines, saying he didn’t expect the bill to pass and might not have signed it if he’d known it would be so “divisive.”
🚑 HEALTH CARE
Andrew supports Medicare for All
, took on the for-profit insurance industry, and led the fight for mental health care.
Hick not only opposes Medicare for All, he parrots the insurance industry’s arguments against it—and compared progressives who support it to “Karl Marx and Joseph Stalin.”
Here’s the good news: even a generic Democrat beats Cory Gardner by double digits.
Let’s replace Gardner with one of the most effective legislative leaders in America—that’s Andrew—rather than a candidate who repeatedly told us he’d be a “terrible” senator and wasn’t cut out for the job!
The contrast is clear. Will you help us share Andrew’s bold, progressive vision by chipping in $5 or more right now?
