Gardner Concludes National Security Town Hall in Florence, CO

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) today hosted a town hall in Florence, Colorado focused on national security issues. Local elected officials, including members of the law enforcement community, and other local leaders joined Gardner in Fremont County. The audience asked Gardner to address North Korea's growing aggression, the potential transfer of Guantanamo Bay detainees to Colorado, and the President's foreign policy strategy.

“Local elected officials, law enforcement, and community leaders all contributed to a productive conversation that focused on national security issues in Fremont County,” said Gardner. “From the rise of ISIS, to President Obama’s reckless proposal to transfer Guantanamo Bay detainees to the United States, our country faces significant national security challenges. Keeping Coloradans safe is my top priority and that's why I'll continue to support policies that ensure our security is not undermined and promote a stronger, safer America.”
