Udall: Gardner’s Beliefs Haven’t Changed, But His Ambitions Have

When ultra-conservative Colorado Representative Cory Gardner jumped into the race to challenge 21st Century Democrats-endorsed candidate Senator Mark Udall, the fight for the majority in the Senate became a lot tougher.

One of the top 10 most conservative members of Congress, Gardner is abandoning his core stances to move to the center for the Senate campaign.  A longtime support of “fetal personhood” laws, since announcing his Senate run, Gardner has outright switched his position.

And as flip-flops go, this was extreme.  Just four days before his reversal, Gardner sent a letter to his constituents, reiterating his support for personhood measures, according to The Denver Post.

It’s not the first time Gardner flipped on these issues, the subject of the Mark Udall campaign video above.
