DENVER (AP) - A recall petition against a second Democrat who supported Colorado gun control measures has been deemed sufficient.
Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler said Monday that opponents of Sen. Angela Giron, of Pueblo, turned in nearly 13,000 valid signatures to prompt a recall election. They only needed to submit 11,285.
The governor will set a date for the recall election unless someone challenges the validity of the petition.
Meanwhile, lawyers for Senate President John Morse are fighting a recall effort against him, saying petitions were improperly worded and were therefore invalid.
Gun rights supporters have been unhappy with new state laws that will expand background checks for gun purchases and limit the size of ammunition magazines, starting next month.
