Colorado’s U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner took a dozen questions from a skeptical crowd in a telephone town hall Wednesday before departing for an event with President Trump at the White House.
The 45-minute call drew about 10,000 people and put the Republican senator on the defense on a range of issues, from Trump’s cabinet picks and Russia to the Affordable Care Act and marijuana.
“Nothing is more important to me than listening to your concerns and hearing your important opinions,” he said at the beginning of the call.
