Voters tossed out both of the anti-gun Colorado state senators up for recall last night, including the senate president. This, despite a massive spending advantage in favor of the anti-gun/anti-recall side.
It’s one thing for a deliberately polarizing legislator like Morse to lose a close race in a swing district. It’s quite another for Giron to lose by 12 points in a district that is 47% Democratic and 23% Republican. One reason is that in blue collar districts like Pueblo, there are plenty of Democrats who cling to their Second Amendment rights. As the Denver Post noted, 20% of the voters who signed the Giron recall petitions were Democrats.
