Total Recall! Colorado State Senators Morse and Giron Voted Out

Colorado Senate President John Morse of Colorado Springs  Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo conceded their seats Tuesday night in the state’s first ever recall election.
He and  Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo faced recall elections because of their support for the stricter gun laws passed last spring.

Via The Denver Post, here are the results:

Ballot Issue State Senate 3 – Recall Giron

100% reporting
Yes 56.0% (19,355)
No 43.9% (15,201)

Ballot Issue State Senate 11 – Recall Morse

100% reporting
Yes 50.9% (9,094)
No 49.0% (8,751)

The Democrat anti-recall camp outspent the recallers by at least  8 to 1 analysts estimated.

Via The Washington Times:

 Two billionaires — New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Eli Broad of Los Angeles — gave a combined $600,000 to fight the recalls, while labor unions, Planned Parenthood Votes and the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee have also pitched in.

Michelle Malkin wrote that “the significance of this historic and unprecedented battle cannot be overstated.”

As I’ve reported over the past several months, the effort was an astonishing grass-roots effort in which ordinary citizens gathered more than 16,000 signatures for a recall petition in Colorado Springs over a matter of weeks. The role of women (Coloradans Laura Carno, Kelly Maher, Kim Weeks were among the leading lights) in pushing back against false gun-grabbing narratives and smears was invaluable. The birth control fear-mongering failed. The use of social media to organize echoes other successful Tea Party efforts.

Via Katie Pavlich of Townhall, a statement from the NRA:

 he National Rifle Association, which helped fund the recall effort, has issued a statement.

A historic grassroots effort by voters in Colorado’s Senate District 11 has resulted in the recall of Colorado Senate President John Morse (D). The people of Colorado Springs sent a clear message to the Senate leader that his primary job was to defend their rights and freedoms and that he is ultimately accountable to them – his constituents, and not to the dollars or social engineering agendas of anti-gun billionaires.

Recall proceedings began earlier this year after Sen. Morse pushed through anti-gun legislation that restricted the ability of law-abiding residents to exercise their Second Amendment rights, including their inherent right to self-defense. This effort was driven by concerned citizens, who made phone calls, knocked on doors, and worked diligently to turn voters out in this historic effort.

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to have stood with the men and women in Colorado who sent a clear message that their Second Amendment rights are not for sale. We look forward to working with NRA-PVF “A” rated and endorsed Bernie Herpin (R) from Colorado Springs.
