“We will be in Colorado a lot, actually,” Trump said at a paid family leave event.

“We have a great senator in Colorado, we have to get him extended. I’ll be there a lot,” Trump said about Sen. Cory Gardner.
Trump’s praise of Gardner is helpful for Gardner’s reelection support among Trump supporters in the state. The president is above 90 percent support among the Republican base in Colorado.
The praise is also a blessing for Democrats in Colorado, who plan on connecting Gardner to Trump in an effort to defeat him.
Meanwhile, Trump took time to retweet Congressman Ken Buck Thursday. Buck sits on the House Judiciary Committee and has been critical of the impeachment process.
