Skip to comments.Morse Scrambles to Fight Recall by Calling on Help from Boston, San Francisco (Colorado Gun Grabber)

DENVER Senate President John Morse issued a national plea for help to out-of-state supporters from Boston to San Francisco as Colorado Democrats went on the offensive Tuesday to save him from a recall vote.
A spokeswoman for A Whole Lot of People for John Morse announced Tuesday that a protest had been filed to nullify the recall petitions within hours after the Colorado Secretary of States office declared that the petitions were sufficient to force a recall election.
Meanwhile, Morse urged out-of-state supporters to help him keep his Colorado Springs legislative seat by donating their money and time.
[A]ny help that you can give us in fundraising or in volunteering, even from around the country, truthfully, said Morse in a video message. We can get phone lists to you and things like that and have you help from Boston, Massachusetts, or from San Francisco, California. So thanks for all that youve done so far and thanks for all that youre going to do as we move forward to take on this tiger.
The message, posted Monday on the Facebook page A Whole Lot of People for John Morse, underscores the national prominence of the recall fight, which is being viewed as a referendum on gun rights.
Paul Paradis, one of the recall organizers, accused Morse of trying to combat the will of those living in the Colorado Springs district with out-of-state interest groups.
Hes trying to get other states to run this district, pure and simple, said Paradis. We want someone whos going to represent our side of town, not Los Angeles, not New York.

You are welcome LP! Hope this stands and they allow things to proceed.
Sad, but true!
Oh LP, I like your positive thinking!!!
"Live and learn."
I'll tell you what...I love it.
Huh? You are on FReepublic.com, and somehow missed about dozens of articles regarding the RATs pushing through their anti-gun laws in Colorado with Morse leading the way?
BTW, there were recall elections in WI for the past two years, from petulant RATs seeking to overturn Gov Scott Walker & his reforms, including reforms against unions tyranny.
Just fyi in case you missed it as well.
Well, that’s what working 60+ hours a week does to you, I guess.
“I don’t give a rat’s butt what the people in my district want. I’m hanging on to my power and influence
by recruiting people from outside my state to defeat the lawful and qualifying recall election.”
- Senate president John Morse
With all due respect, you shame the name Morse.
