Recall petition against Senate President Leroy Garcia approved, campaign can start collecting signatures


A recall petition targeting Colorado Senate President Leroy Garcia was approved Monday by state elections officials, meaning opponents of the Pueblo Democrat can being collecting signatures in an attempt to oust him from office.

Garcia is the latest — and most high profile — Democratic state lawmaker to be targeted by a recall campaign following the 2019 Colorado legislative session.

His colleagues, state Sens. Brittany Pettersen, of Lakewood, and Pete Lee, of Colorado Springs, are also facing recall campaigns. (Petitions also are circulating to have Gov. Jared Polis recalled, the fourth Democrat facing an active recall campaign.)

“This is yet another effort by extremists and sore losers to undermine the will of the voters in Pueblo,” said Matt McGovern, who co-directs Our Colorado Way of Life, a group defending Democrats against recall efforts. “Sen. Garcia won his last election with 73% of the vote. From his service in the Marine Corps to his tireless work to make health care more affordable to Puebloans, Sen. Garcia has dedicated his life to his community.”
