Colorado gun-rights voters oust Democratic Senate president in recall election

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., September 11, 2013 — As the ballots were counted Tuesday night in El Paso and Pueblo Counties, John Morse and Angela Giron were voted out of office in Colorado’s first-ever recalls of state legislators.

In Colorado Springs, John Morse made history by becoming the first state legislator ever to be voted out of office in a recall election. Of 17,858 votes cast, 51% voted yes to the recall. In the vote for successor candidates, Republican Bernie Herpin received 83% of the vote. Another 17% went to write-in candidates. Libertarian Jan Brooks, who did not gather enough signatures to have her name placed on the ballot, ran a write-in campaign. As of this evening, write-in votes were not yet available by candidate.

The Basic Freedom Defense Fund held an election-night rally at the Stargazer’s Theater in Colorado Springs, where Morse’s concession was announced at 9:20pm. The Clerk and Recorder’s office tabulated the votes from the first four days of voting shortly after the polls closed at 7pm. Morse was running behind 52-47 at that point. A get-out-the-vote effort today narrowed the lead a bit, but not enough. Recall organizers cheered the news of the win; many were tired from eight months of effort.

Tim Knight, one of three people who started recall efforts, said that the recall was not about guns—it was about John Morse not listening to constituents.
