The U.S. Chamber of Commerce threw its formal support behind U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner on Wednesday — putting its mouth where its money has been, following the business advocacy organization’s heavy spending already this cycle to back the Colorado Republican’s re-election bid.

“In difficult times, we are reminded of the importance of having leaders that understand the genius of the American system of government and free enterprise and who are willing to tackle the hard problems that confront our nation,” said U.S. Chamber CEO Thomas J. Donohue, in a statement.

“As our country faces many challenges and is collectively working to not just reopen our economy, but return to growth and expanded opportunities for all Americans, we need leaders like Senator Cory Gardner. He has a proven track record of leading responsibly and standing up for good policies. The U.S. Chamber is proud to endorse Cory and looks forward to partnering with him in the future.”

“It’s amazing what you can do when you decide this country is more than just parties, it’s more than just red and blue — it’s red, white and blue,” Gardner said. “When you believe in Colorado, anything is possible. It’s not because you’re a Democrat, it’s not because you’re a Republican, it’s because you’re for Colorado.”
