Gardner’s press secretary, Casey Contres, confirmed the reporting to the Daily Caller News Foundation. Contres added that Gardner’s office may provide additional details on the threat at a later time.
It wasn’t immediately clear if there were any suspects, or if law enforcement knew the source of the disturbing message.
As Fox News noted, Gardner voiced his support for Kavanaugh in July after President Donald Trump nominated him. Gardner reiterated his support for Kavanaugh after the FBI concluded its “supplemental” investigation into Kavanaugh’s background last week.

Sen. Cory Gardner Reveals Wife Received Graphic Text of Beheading After Kavanaugh Vote
By Fox News. In the wake of his vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Saturday, Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., revealed to Fox News on Sunday that his wife had received a graphic text message with a video depicting a beheading, and that someone has publicly posted the names and addresses of his family members.
Gardner announced his support for Kavanaugh in July, and reaffirmed it after reviewing the supplemental FBI report into uncorroborated sexual misconduct allegations against him.
Late last month, Gardner received a letter from an anonymous individual apparently in Denver, alleging that Kavanaugh had “shoved” someone up against a wall “very aggressively and sexually” during an outing in 1998 in front of four witnesses. The allegation was later deemed not to be credible.
“Every victim of abuse, assault, and violence has been through an unspeakable tragedy and we need to do a better job listening to them, ensuring support is available, and fighting to end abuse of any kind,” Gardner said in a statement prior to receiving the graphic text messages. “I hope that the partisan divide we all feel today does not hinder the people that have bravely come forward.”
Kavanaugh, his wife Ashley, and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford have also all received numerous death threats in recent days. (Read more from “Sen. Cory Gardner Reveals Wife Received Graphic Text of Beheading After Kavanaugh Vote” HERE)
