Fox 31 Denver is teasing interview with Cory Gardner to be broadcast 9 a.m. Sunday on reporter Eli Stokols’ “#COPolitics from the Source.”
Judging from the short exchange between Gardner and Stokols broadcast by Fox 31 last night, it appears Stokols pressed Gardner for a factual explanation from Gardner about why he withdrew his endorsement from personhood amendments at the state level but continues to support federal personhood legislation, which would abortion, even in the case of rape and incest.
Stokols: You don’t support the personhood amendment at the state level anymore. Why keep your name on that Life At Conception Act at the federal level?
Gardner: There is no such thing as the federal personhood bill.
Stokols: Cory, the people who wrote that bill, Congressmen Duncan Hunter of California, Paul Broun of Georgia, they say–Personhood USA says–that that is what the Life at Conception Act is.
Gardner: When I announced for the Senate, that’s when this outcry started from the Senate campaign of Senator Udall. That’s what they are tyring to do. This is all politics. It’s unfortunate that they can’t focus on–
Stokols: But the facts are —
Gardner: No, the facts are, Eli, that there is no federal personhood bill. There is no federal personhood bill.
I’m looking forward to seeing the entire interview, which will air on Fox 31 Sunday morning at 9 a.m.
