Awesome! From a Monument resident...thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to make this outcome possible.
Any good news on the Giron race?
Thank you Doug for all of your hard work in this effort!
Be careful. Morse is apparantly within recount distance, and you know how Democrats NEVER lose THOSE.
I’m especially pleased to see Bloomy wasted his money here.
Hope it turn into a total loss!
Next stop is to send Hick back to his brew pub.
Hey Bloomberg! Bite me! Money can’t buy the Bill of Rights you pig!
Next fix the gun laws.

Colo. senate president loses recall over gun laws
By COLLEEN SLEVIN
DENVER (AP) — Democratic Senate President John Morse has been recalled by Colorado Springs voters in a special election driven by his support for new gun restrictions.
A majority of voters said “yes” to the question of whether Morse should be recalled from office Tuesday night. They chose former Republican City Councilman Bernie Herpin as his successor.
Morse was an appealing target for a recall because he narrowly won re-election in 2010. He supported several Democratic-sponsored gun bills this year, including new limits on the size of ammunition magazines and expanding background checks to online and private firearm sales.
Democratic Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo also faced a recall over the gun laws, which were a response to mass shootings in Colorado and Connecticut last year.
I’ve been looking all over the web for news of the Colorado recall results, and apparently the Old Media is doing a blackout. Thanks, Colorado Doug. I can always count on the Freepers to dig up the real news.
