[July 18, 2013] - Gov. John Hickenlooper has set Tuesday, Sept. 10, as the date for recall elections for two Democratic state senators.
“We appreciate that the court acknowledged we did the right thing in waiting until after its ruling to set the date,” Hickenlooper said in a statement. “This means that the El Paso and Pueblo county clerks can begin their preparations for the elections knowing that their efforts will not be for naught.”
Colorado Springs Senate President John Morse and Pueblo Senator Angela Hiron have been targeted because of their votes for gun control laws during the past legislative session.
