Colorado Senate President John Morse paid the ultimate political price today for his dedicated Second Amendment abrogating advocacy. Despite millions of dollars poured into the state by Michael Bloomberg and the rest of the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex (NPR reports pro-recall forces were outspent 7 to 1), Morse has become the first Colorado state senator to be recalled.
Morse officially conceded around 10:30 PM CST, and while the results were extremely close at the time (8,777 to 8,414 with 93% reporting) the writing was on the wall.
Morse had been gloating earlier on Twitter about writing his speech, but I get the feeling that the one he delivered to supporters wasn’t the one he’d hoped for. This represents a massive victory for the pro-gun movement, overcoming the astounding volume of cash that the Democratic party and gun controllers (OK, that’s redundant) poured into the state.
All that’s left to make this a slam-dunk night is for Sen. Angela Giron to follow suit. With results expected by 11 PM and the polls are currently showing 56% in favor of kicking her to the curb, too.
