Roy Moore loss ends roller coaster for Colorado’s Cory Gardner

WASHINGTON — In response to Tuesday’s election in Alabama, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., took one last jab at Republican Roy Moore and urged Democrat Doug Jones to take the very unlikely step of joining with GOP lawmakers once he gets to Congress.

“Tonight’s results are clear – the people of Alabama deemed Roy Moore unfit to serve in the U.S. Senate,” said Gardner in a statement. “I hope Senator-elect Doug Jones will do the right thing and truly represent Alabama by choosing to vote with the Senate Republican Majority.”

His comment follows a roller coaster few months for Gardner, who chairs the fundraising machine in charge of electing Senate Republicans.

That group, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, opposed Moore in the Alabama GOP primary but got behind him after he defeated incumbent Luther Strange. Following the primary, Gardner said Moore was “imperative to passing a conservative agenda.”
