GOP admits 2 more recall efforts have failed in Colorado

Republicans admitted defeat in two more recall efforts, failing as they did at the ballot box last November.

After losing races across Colorado in the 2018 midterm election, Republicans schemed to bypass the will of the voters and recall a number of Democratic lawmakers. On Tuesday, Republican operatives admitted defeat in two of those efforts, according to KRDO.

The group leading the recall effort against state Sens. Pete Lee and Brittany Pettersen told the Colorado secretary of state's office that they would not be turning in the required signatures by this week's deadline.

The news comes after Republicans failed to recall both Gov. Jared Polis and state Rep. Thomas Sullivan, a father who lost his son in 2012's mass shooting at a movie theater in Aurora.

"If Colorado Republicans want to keep wasting their time on these Sisyphean recall attempts, we'll gladly keep batting them down," Matt Harringer, press secretary for the DLCC, said in a statement. "These radical Republicans can't win at the ballot box, so they're playing political games," he added.

4. They had a booth set up to recall Gov Polis at a street corner.

I had to stop for a red light so I called one of the petitioners over to the car and asked her if she had one for Trump.
She politely told me no.
Damn.
