    What a huge defeat for the liberal Dem. Two Dem in Colorado were defeated for not listening to the will of the people. One was the President of the Senate John Morse who was defeated by a 51 to 49 and the other Angela Giron of Pueblo was defeated in her recall election, 56 percent to 44 percent.


    "Two Democratic lawmakers in Colorado, including the president of the state Senate, were recalled Tuesday in elections brought about by their support for tougher gun control laws.

    According to unofficial results, voters in Colorado Springs favored recalling state Sen. John Morse, the body's president, by 51 percent to 49 percent. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, state Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo was defeated in her recall election, 56 percent to 44 percent.

    The Colorado Republican Party called the vote results "a loud and clear message to out-of-touch Democrats across the nation" in a statement released late Tuesday. Colorado's Democratic governor, John Hickenlooper, said he was "disappointed by the outcome of the recall elections" before calling on state residents to "refocus again on what unites Coloradans -- creating jobs, educating our children, creating a healthier state -- and on finding ways to keep Colorado moving forward."

    It's an interesting dichotomy to have a pot smoking, gun, freedom loving state.

    Colorado Governor is out of touch with reality if he thinks smoking pot is healthy (not that I'm totally against smoking weed) but it's not healthy.

    Pub party can typically turn out their voters better than dems on non presidential year elections. Probably why pubs have large advantages in governors and state legislatures. Voters are more engaged. Problem recently has been the large % of clueless voters who vote only at presidential election time. They vote early and often!

    States need to fix the voting registration time... cutting the early voting to a minimum will help cut the fraud too.
