ONE of those new Republican faces you hear about in Congress is Cory Gardner, elected last November to represent Colorado’s Fourth District, defeating Betsy Markey.
Gardner is a dapper, happy man, relaxed, solidly built, comfortable in office, as if he’s been a Congressman for many terms.
He ducks no question and has specific answers on why he supports Israel and how to reduce the debt.
Gardner is an old Colorado hand. His great-grandfather began a farm equipment dealership back in 1915, now owned by Gardner’s father. Gardner himself has worked there since he was 11 or 12.
I met Rep. Gardner at the local AIPAC conference last April. He came to show his support for Israel.
