Littwin: Cory Gardner, I’ve got some questions (column)
December 17, 2016
When we last heard from Sen. Cory Gardner in any detail on Donald Trump, it was a month before the election and Gardner had released a statement calling Trump "a candidate whose flaws are beyond mere moral shortcomings and who shows a disgust for American character and a dignity unbecoming of the Presidency." Gardner said he wouldn't vote for such a man and would write in Mike Pence's name instead.
Those are, uh, pretty tough words, and a lot has happened since. Trump won the election, of course, to nearly everyone's (presumably even Gardner's) surprise. Trump is known to hold a grudge (See: Romney, Poor Mitt). Gardner will lead the Republican National Senatorial Committee for 2018, meaning he'll be charge of getting GOP senators re-elected in the first post-Trump election cycle and also meaning, in all likelihood, he'll find himself having to defend the Trump presidency and the GOP Senate's role in its success or failure.
