Fired GOP senator: 'I'm tired of' being asked 'gotcha questions' like whether I consider Biden the legitimate winner

On Tuesday, Alex Bolton, a reporter for The Hill, revealed that outgoing Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) lashed out after being questioned whether he considers Joe Biden to be president-elect, calling it a "gotcha question" and saying "I'm not going to play your games. I'm tired of it."


A majority of Republicans in Congress are refusing to acknowledge Biden as the next president, although some, like Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and a handful of governors like Charlie Baker (R-MA), have done so.

Gardner, first elected in 2014, was defeated for re-election by former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.
