Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., one of the most vulnerable U.S. senators running for re-election next year, will receive backing from Americans for Prosperity, the political arm of the influential Koch network, CNBC reported Tuesday.

The director of AFP's Colorado operation, Jesse Mallory, explained Gardner's willingness to stand up to President Donald Trump is one of the main reasons for the group's support.

"He was one of the first five GOP senators to back a proposal in 2018 to rein in the president's authority to impose tariffs unilaterally, and has called on the president to work with Congress to avoid prolonging the trade war that is driving up prices for consumers and businesses and killing jobs in industries that depend on imported components, in Colorado and across the country," Mallory wrote in an op-ed published in the Colorado Sun on Tuesday.

In addition to benefitting from AFP Action's grassroots mobilization and advertising campaigns, the Libertarian organization will also be hosting a rally for Gardner in Denver on June 26.

The endorsement by the AFP for Gardner comes as political analysts are labeling Colorado's senate seat as a possible pickup opportunity for the Democrats in 2020, with the GOP defending at least 20 seats in the Senate in the election next year.
