Contributing sentiments towards policy:

65% : Again, via The Colorado Sun:"I've been very transparent, very open about my position on abortion," Kirkmeyer said.
57% : Meanwhile, Jesse Paul of The Colorado Sun reports on Bennet's new TV spot highlighting the fact that there is a very clear choice between the U.S. Senate candidates when it comes to abortion rights:Democrats see Joe O'Dea's stance on abortion as an area of weakness heading into the November election, as highlighted by a new television ad unveiled Thursday by Democratic U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, O'Dea's opponent.
48% : We'll have more on that in a moment, but first...lest there be any confusion on the subject, former militia leader and current State Republican Party Chair Kristi Burton Brown today punctured any Republican candidate's hopes of continuing to dance around the topic of abortion:This will probably cause no small amount of heartburn in GOP campaign offices around the state today.
40% : As the Supreme Court's June decision on the Dobbs v. Jackson case that essentially overturned Roe v. Wade confirmed, the threat to abortion rights was very real (and now, so is the threat to same-sex and interracial marriage).
37% : To be clear, Gardner was open about his opposition to abortion; he just avoided the subject by claiming that it was "settled law" in the United States.
34% : As Colorado learned from Gardner, abortion is a "settled question" only until it isn't.
30% : -U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner's opposition to abortion.
12% : The editorial board of The Denver Post infamously endorsed Gardner in 2014, with one particular paragraph that will not soon be forgotten:[Gardner's] past views on same-sex marriage are becoming irrelevant now that the Supreme Court has let appeals court rulings stand and marriage equality appears unstoppable.
