Giffords Endorses Senator Michael Bennet for the US Senate
WASHINGTON, DC — Giffords PAC, the gun violence prevention organization founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, announced today it is endorsing Michael Bennet for reelection to the US Senate. The announcement was made during a virtual event hosted by Giffords PAC. Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, Giffords Senior Advisor Ryan Busse, and Giffords Gun Owners for Safety members joined Senator Bennet in a conversation on responsible gun ownership. Michael Bennet has dedicated his life to public service and has passionately fought to improve the lives of his constituents and strengthen public safety.
Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords:
Senator Michael Bennet:
Michael Bennet has been a longstanding advocate for commonsense gun safety. As Colorado’s senior senator, he has consistently pushed for commonsense solutions to the issues impacting people of all walks of life across his state, and Colorado residents have sent him back to the Senate to continue this important work—re-electing him to a full term in 2010 and again in 2016. After tragic mass shootings like those in Aurora and Boulder, Senator Bennet has passionately called for comprehensive, bipartisan solutions to stop the violence plaguing cities and towns across our country.
After the Colorado legislature took decisive action by closing dangerous loopholes in its own gun laws, Senator Bennet called for the US Senate to follow his state’s example by expanding universal background checks to all gun sales at the federal level. During his nearly 13 years in the Senate, he has championed legislation to bar perpetrators of domestic violence from being able to access firearms and repeatedly urged his colleagues to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act. Giffords is proud to endorse Michael Bennet for the US Senate.
