It’s a group that’s devoted to getting Republican senators elected.

Gardner says Republicans will continue to lead the way.

“As we have led on transportation, as we have led on energy, as we have led — with great success — over the past two years with bipartisan efforts and accomplishments, that led to the majority this November and it will lead to keeping and retaining and growing the majority in November of 2018,” Gardner said in Washington on Wednesday.
