Colorado Democrats lose recall elections over gun-control votes

Post  fshnski on Wed Sep 11, 2013 8:41 am

DENVER — Colorado voters stunned the nation Tuesday night by ousting two heavily funded Democratic state legislators in a recall election that was cast as a national referendum on gun control.

Senate President John Morse and state Sen. Angela Giron lost their seats in the state’s first-ever Legislative recall election, despite the support of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, hundreds of ground troops from groups like Organizing for America, and a 7-to-1 spending advantage.

SPECIAL COVERAGE: Second Amendment and Gun Control

The results of the double recall shocked state Democrats, who had insisted voters would back the Legislature’s recently passed gun bills. Meanwhile, gun-rights advocates and Republicans were elated, betting that the recalls will discourage other states from pushing forward with gun-control legislation.

"Authoritarian" Mayor Bloomberg put 1/3 of a million dollars into defeating the recall.

Surprised 

Makes the mid-term election outlook better for a Colorado turn-about from the White House's Marxism.

Very Happy

The dems spent money at a 7 to 1 ratio to try and overturn the recalls. Most of that was out of state money. This is a good day for the second amendment.

And a good day for Americans!

Can a president be recalled?

No it's too late, Bush is already out of office.

But I do agree with you, Bush should have been recalled after the first week in office.

In that district, about 10% of votes for Dims are fraudulent. So the recall was an even bigger news-story!

"The results of Tuesday’s recall elections in Colorado are unambiguous.

Two Democratic state senators, one of them the sitting president of the Colorado Senate, faced recall elections. State Sen. John Morse and State Sen. Angela Giron, both Democrats, had the full support of Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns as well as their state party and the Democratic National Committee.

They were both recalled last night. Tossed from office. They lost their seats, and the Republicans nearly took control of the Colorado Senate. One issue drove the entire recall: guns. In Giron’s case, returns reveal that thousands of Democrats even voted to recall her.

Both Morse and Giron voted to curb Second Amendment rights in the state of Colorado at the behest of the national Democrats and Bloomberg’s anti-gun group. Specifically, they voted to limit magazine capacity, and they voted to mandate background checks on private gun sales between indivuals. Now they’re both out of office..."

I'm not the first person to say this, but the Colorado voters replaced gun control with politician control.
