  • Democrats Threw Everything They Had At Scott Walker—And Still Lost

    Right to work. The elimination of wage control laws. Voter ID laws. Defunding Planned Parenthood. Expanding school choice. These are some of the No. 1 priorities for Republican legislators around the country. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has hit every item on this list, and he did so in a deep blue state; Wisconsin hasn’t gone red in a presidential election in more than 30 years, and its labor union culture may be second only to that of the automotive capital in neighboring Michigan. Walker’s uncompromising conservative governance made him Democrats' No. 1 target at both the state and national level,...

    In what may come as a surprise to residents of Colorado Springs and Pueblo, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg doesn’t think those cities have roads. Bloomberg told Rolling Stone that he was “sorry” about the recalls of two state senators last year over the Democratic state legislature’s gun-control laws, but added that their districts were so “rural” that, “I don’t think there’s roads.” “In Colorado, we got a law passed. The NRA went after two or three state senators in a part of Colorado where I don’t think there’s roads,” said Bloomberg in the interview published online Wednesday....

    With all the momentum from the victories in successful recall elections for two other anti-gun senators Follow Guns ‘n’ Freedom on Twitter and stay informed! in Colorado, the pro gun movement is alive and well in the Centennial State. If the gun grabbers were not paying attention before, they should be now as a third senator is being targeted for removal from office for pushing restrictive gun control through the state. On Friday, October 4th, the Secretary of State in Colorado approved a petition to recall Senator Evie Hudak, a Democrat from Senate District 19. The group that is organizing...
  • Colorado Voters Aim is True

    Last night's recall elections, the first two in the history of Colorado, were hugely successful in driving two democratic state senators from office. John Morse and Angela Giron, were both recalled yesterday, in which the nation looked on as a referendum for gun control. Giron's loss was somewhat unexpected, since democrats outnumber republicans in that district, by a whopping 47% to 23%. Since the recall petitions went out, the elections have been seen of national importance for both sides. Gun control has always been a national issue that have led to certain defeat on election day, but forces within the...

    Heading into the September 10th recall elections of Colorado state senators Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) and John Morse (D-Colorado Springs), it is important for voters to remember Giron's admission that if either she or Morse falls it will be detrimental to NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg's gun control dreams. Giron's said: "For Mayors Against Illegal Guns, if they even lose one of these seats, they might as well fold it up. And they understand that." ... a vote against Giron is a vote to stop Bloomberg's runaway gun control agenda.

    The recall elections in Colorado are heating up as the Colorado Woman’s Alliance released a radio ad in which a rape victim excoriates the 2 anti-gun senators for voting in gun control. In the ad Kimberly Weeks condemns Sen. Angela Giron, D-Pueblo and Sen. John Morse, D-Colorado Springs for stripping women of their rights to defend themselves, accusing Giron of being “arrogant”. “We have a right to choose how we protect ourselves and our families — but Senators Morse and Giron didn’t think twice about taking that right away,” Weeks says.
  • Colorado Governor Goes Far Left in Nationwide Appeal to Gun-Grabbers

    It never fails. Paint a Democrat into a corner (or let him do it to himself) and his true colors will start to show. The “moderate” and “reasonable” Democrat Governor of New-New-York (AKA: Colorado) has finally come out forcefully against the recall elections of some anti-gun members of the State Legislature. The two Democrat State Senators are facing recall attempts after they supported the recent slew of gun-control measures that were ultimately signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper. “These recall elections cost a small fortune and do nothing to improve democracy or representative government,” Hickenlooper wrote in a letter...

    Yesterday Wisconsin State Republicans faced recall elections. Their crime in the twisted minds of democrats? These republicans voted to balance the WI state budget. As you all know, 14 democrat state senators fled our state to avoid taking the vote on that budget bill. Last night we learned that the recall elections from Tuesday August 9th, resulted in 2 of the 6 republicans being taken out of office. The count before the election was 19 repubicans to 14 democrats in the state senate. After yesterday's elections we now have 17 republicans against 16 democrats.
  • What Prosser's Victory Means for the Recall Elections

    If it holds up, the 7,316-vote victory claimed Monday night by Wisconsin Supreme Court Judge David Prosser over Democratic challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg would be a blow to liberals in the state. Prosser is a longtime Republican state legislator, and his victory would give conservatives a working 4-3 majority on the state's high court. Regardless of who eventually comes out ahead in the seemingly inevitable recount, however, Wisconsin clearly remains a bright "purple" state. This reality has significant implications for the upcoming recall elections, which we can now examine in more detail. Wisconsin law allows for the recall of elected officials...

    Arnold was supposed to win. Any talk about how brilliant his advisors are is silly. Arnold deserves credit for taking the opportunity, but that's about it. The recognition for what happened in California on October 7, 2003 goes to Rep. Darrell Issa. Whether you were for or against the recall (Democrat, Republican, Independent, unaffiliated, undeclared, whatever), one has to recognize Rep. Issa's historic accomplishment to successfully execute a recall of California's executive officer. - snip So why was Governor Davis recalled and why was Arnold elected governor of California? Two reasons that should come as no surprise. Californians just didn't...

    Davis makes it sound like 8 million people voted for him for Govenor. Not so only 3.3 million voted for him and remember that in a very short time 2.0 million just signed petitions to recall him. AND he was elected by a plurality just like Arnold will be. Come on National Press, don't let Davis get away with making it sound like he got 8 million votes, geeezz!!!

    Never mind that Savell, 25, is a Republican and no fan of Davis. To him, the governor is a career politician sadly lacking in scruples and charisma. But the thought of unsheathing an electoral guillotine less than a year after Davis won reelection gives Savell qualms. Despite his distaste for the governor, Savell says, he will vote against the recall. "Gray Davis doesn't have the right stuff to lead the world's fifth-largest economy," proclaimed Savell, a salesman at a Concord auto dealership. "But I'm someone who does not believe that recalling him will help fix the problems of the state."
