    Republicans are voting at a higher rate throughout most of Colorado's counties, even in Democratic strongholds like Denver and Boulder counties. Based on data provided Tuesday morning by the Secretary of State, 83,662 more Republicans than Democrats had submitted their ballots early. That data doesn't account for any ballots dropped off Tuesday or those completed and submitted at a polling place.

    DENVER — After two successful recall elections in Colorado, there is a new effort under way. This one is to recall state Senator Evie Hudak because of her support for gun control during the last legislative session. Her district includes Westminster and Arvada in northwest metro Denver. Hudak issued a statement Friday night about the recall effort against her. “The approval of a recall petition will not change my focus on the 2014 legislative session, during which I will advocate for women and seniors, and for the best education we can provide our children – just as I have always...
  • Colorado’s Gun-Control Meltdown: Democratic legislators made their contempt for the people clear.

    Colorado Springs — Quick, call the CDC. We’ve got a Rocky Mountain outbreak of Acute Sore-Loser Fever. After failing to stave off two historic recall bids on Tuesday, two delusional state legislators and their national party bosses just can’t help but double down and trash voters as dumb, sick, criminal, and profligate. The ululations of gun-grabbing Democrats here in my adopted home state are reverberating far and wide. Appearing on cable TV Thursday to answer the question “What happened?” Pueblo state senator Angela Giron sputtered that she lost her seat due to “voter suppression.” Giron whined to CNN anchor Brooke...
  • Ken Buck for Colorado

    When establishment Republicans wish to pretend they were wiser than tea party types in 2010, they’ll mention Sharon Angle, Christine O’Donnell, and Ken Buck as examples of “trust them.” They ignore Marco Rubio, who they opposed. They ignore Mike Lee, who they opposed. They ignore Rand Paul, who they opposed. They ignore Pat Toomey, who they opposed even after Arlen Specter jumped to the Democrats. And to include Ken Buck they must have you ignore all the facts. It is true that in 2010, conservatives rallied to Ken Buck and the establishment rallied to Jane Norton. It is true that...
  • Bad news: Colorado Democrat defeated in recall election over gun control not taking it well

    Via the Corner. Tuesday night, expecting a close race, I couldn’t believe that she lost by 12 points. Now, after watching her for the first time, I can’t believe she lost by only 12 points. She’s got one argument here — “voter suppression,” ripped straight from the DNC’s talking points memo, which is completely destroyed by her own now-famous admission a few weeks ago that if Bloomberg and his anti-gun group couldn’t buy her a victory in this race, “they might as well fold it up.” They did their best for her; as Erika noted earlier, gun-grabbers outspent gun-rights supporters...

    Colorado voters kicked Democratic state senators John Morse and Angela Giron out of office Tuesday, the first legislators in the state’s 137-year history to be recalled by their constituents. The Democrats were targeted for their support of strict new gun laws that have drawn both opposition and support since they were passed by a Democratic-controlled state legislature earlier this year, but the opponents had final say in the hard-fought races.

    Four Colorado Democrats, including Senator Angela Giron, face recall efforts. (Opposing Views) Colorado Democratic lawmakers face recall efforts after their gun control votes. FOX News reported: Colorado Democratic lawmakers who recently helped pass some of the toughest gun-control laws in the country now face the political backlash of recall efforts. Two groups are targeting state Rep. Mike McLachlan and state Sens. Angela Giron, Evie Hudak and John Morse. The Democrat-controlled legislature passed bills that ban magazines holding more than 15 rounds and require background checks for all gun transfers. They were signed into law in March by Democratic Gov. John...

    DENVER (CBS4)- President Barack Obama is traveling to Colorado next week to discuss the state’s new gun control laws with law enforcement and community leaders. The president met with relatives of victims of gun violence in Washington, DC on Thursday. He’s pushing for legislation that would expand background checks nationwide in hopes of avoiding another tragedy like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary in December of last year. “We need everybody to remember how we felt 100 days ago and make sure what we said at that time isn’t just a bunch of platitudes,” said Obama. The event was part...

    Memo to the leaders of the GOP: Wise up.The dysfunction in the national GOP was on display in Colorado over the weekend; and oh, boy, what a mess.If conservatives ever win an election again in Colorado it will be only by mistake. Incumbent chair, Ryan Call, was re-elected 272 votes to 158 over a well-known challenger who had previously served as chairman in one of the metro counties.I know both men and took no part in the fight.By way of disclosure, however, I should say that the challenger served with me as vice chair when I was chairman of a county...
