Cory Gardner Holds Raucous, Testy Town Hall in Lakewood

Cory Gardner Holds Raucous, Testy Town Hall in Lakewood

At his Lakewood town hall on Tuesday, August 15, Senator Cory Gardner saw a lot of red. Audience members were handed signs before the event that had nothing more than a red thumbs-down and a green thumbs-up on either side, and the crowd of mostly Gardner detractors waved the red finger, so to speak, at Gardner with reckless abandon at any mention of his conservative leanings or Donald Trump. Signs weren't Gardner's only problem yesterday. Despite a moderator repeatedly asking the crowd to remain respectful and lower their voices, hecklers interrupted Gardner nearly every time he tried to answer a question.
