Colorado Senate President John Morse was a key figure in getting gun-control legislation passed. Now he faces a recall by voters. The Wall Street Journal covers it here:
A voter effort to oust Colorado’s Senate president from office has cleared a key hurdle, sending a cautionary message to state lawmakers who support gun control.
Colorado authorities on Tuesday certified that the campaign to oust Sen. John Morse, a Democrat who had successfully pushed for a package of gun-control laws earlier this year, had gathered enough voter signatures to put the recall attempt on the ballot later this year.
The secretary of state’s office verified that more than 10,000 registered voters in Mr. Morse’s Colorado Springs-area district signed a petition to recall Mr. Morse. About 7,200 were needed to trigger a recall vote, which would be the first of an elected state official in Colorado history.
