Cory Gardner Midterm Election Results: GOP Challenger Defeats Incumbent Mark Udall

Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) defeated incumbent Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) in one of the country's most competitive Senate contests Tuesday.

Gardner, who was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010, faced charges from Udall's campaign of being inhospitable to abortion and contraceptive access. But Gardner said he supported making birth control available over the counter and disavowed his previous support for a fetal personhood law.
