Momentum on Buck’s Side with Only 10 Days until Election Day
Bucks Highlights Jobs, Spending in Last U.S. Senate Debate
Buck provided a convincing closing argument, focused on his plans to create jobs and reign in Washington’s spending.
The debate comes only a day after the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment announced that Colorado lost jobs for the eleventh consecutive month, bringing Colorado’s unemployment to 8.2 percent.
“For months now, Michael Bennet has tried to run away from his record as a rubberstamp for Obama’s big spending,” said Ken Buck after the debate. “The hundreds-of-thousands of Coloradans who are unemployed aren’t buying it. They know that Bennet’s votes have hurt our economy, small businesses and cost Americans jobs.”
The biggest surprise of the evening happened when Bennet argued that government “there is some certainty out there” for small businesses, highlighting Obamacare as a key that gives us certainty.
“Michael Bennet has spent too much time with the lobbyists and special interests in Washington,” added Buck. “If Bennet would have listened to the vast majority of Coloradans, he would have opposed this bill, and the corruption that pushed it through Washington.”
During the Reality Check segment of the debate, Bennet implied that reporter Shaun Boyd of not telling the truth when it came to his misleading attack ads. Boyd pointed out that Bennet’s ads accusing Buck of wanting to privatize Social Security and abolish student loans were false. ###
