Washington, D.C., July 7, 2020 - Today, the Brady Campaign endorsed former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper in his campaign for election to the United States Senate.
Brady Campaign President Kris Brown said:
“Gov. John Hickenlooper has demonstrated that he will stand with citizens and not the gun lobby when it comes to preventing gun violence. In Colorado, he successfully took a stand against the gun lobby by signing legislation to enact universal background checks and a ban on large-capacity magazines. He will bring his statewide leadership to Washington, using his experience working across the aisle to help pass gun safety legislation for all Americans. Coloradans deserve a Senator who understands the effects of gun violence on communities and families, and who is unafraid to act to keep them safe. Brady is proud to endorse Gov. John Hickenlooper in his campaign for election to the United States Senate.”
Governor John Hickenlooper shared:
“I’m honored to have the support of the Brady Campaign in my run for U.S. Senate. The loss of American lives due to senseless gun violence continues because Washington is plagued with Senators like Cory Gardner — who benefit from millions of dollars in gun lobby spending and vote to earn every penny. If we want to put an end to gun violence in America, we need universal criminal background checks for gun purchases and a ban on high-capacity magazines. In Colorado, we were able to pass common sense gun safety laws in a purple state, and I see no reason we can’t get the same done in Washington.”
Gov. John Hickenlooper will continue his fight for common-sense gun safety legislation in the U.S. Senate. Brady applauds his efforts in Colorado and looks forward to working with him to take action, not sides. We are proud to endorse Gov. John Hickenlooper for the United States Senate.
Brady has one powerful mission — to unite all Americans against gun violence. We work across Congress, the courts, and our communities with over 90 grassroots chapters, bringing together young and old, red and blue, and every shade of color to find common ground in common sense. In the spirit of our namesakes Jim and Sarah Brady, we have fought for over 45 years to take action, not sides, and we will not stop until this epidemic ends. It’s in our hands.
