    The pandemic precludes pressing the flesh, so Sen. Cory Gardner extends his elbow for a merry bump. He’s wearing a green Colorado State University face mask, and when he tugs it down, he’s grinning. He’s serious about protecting the elderly from Covid-19 “because there would be nobody left in the Senate but very few of us,” Mr. Gardner, 46, jokes as he addresses an audience of conservatives in this mountain resort 100 miles west of Denver. But Mr. Gardner’s humor and good cheer contrast with the bleak mood of his supporters, who seem terrified about what will happen if he loses his seat this November.

    “I think it’s pretty simple,” Mr. Gardner tells me. “If we hold Colorado, we keep the Senate majority.” As he courts voters by Zoom, over the phone and in person, he’s observed “a level of concern for the country in their voice that I’ve never heard before. It is beyond just, ‘Man, you’re the person I want to win,’ to ‘We will be lost without you.’ And I don’t by any means take that as me, but if we lose the Senate, if we lose the country to the radical left.” Such alarm from voters is “something I’ve never experienced,” he says. “I did not experience this six years ago.”
