Greenwood Village, Colorado. – At tonight’s gubernatorial debate in Pueblo, Regent Heidi Ganahl took Gov. Jared Polis to task, easily defeating him on his failed record. Meanwhile, the Governor chose to throw out unfounded accusations and tried to evade the bills he supported and signed into law.
Noting that we all must live by our records, Ganahl pointed out Polis’ record on crime:
Ganahl asked Polis to address a mom in the crowd, Miki, whose daughter Heather died from fentanyl overdose. Polis shamefully would not acknowledge Miki even once during the entire debate. Polis also failed to answer any questions about the fentanyl bill he supported and signed into law in 2019 that decriminalized the drug, along with cocaine, meth, and heroin.
Statement from COGOP Chairwoman Kristi Burton Brown: “Heidi Ganahl was absolutely correct when she stated that Polis is ‘living on fantasy island,’ instead of the reality Coloradans face every day. It’s clear Jared Polis can’t defend his terrible record that continues to hurt working families.”
