    Debbie is correct;

    Balloting problems can fully account for Sen. John Morse's margin of defeat. Litigation from a third-party candidate, who in the end failed to garner the needed signatures to join the race, prevented the normal delivery of mail ballots in this election. The situation was further compounded by limited voting hours and locations set up by El Paso County Clerk Wayne Williams. Early voting locations in SD-11 opened days after those in Pueblo, and some as centers, such as liberal Manitou Springs, didn't open until Monday.

    The preliminary tally as of this morning has Morse trailing by a mere 343 votes to Senator-elect Bernie Herpin. But more telling is the stark difference in the total number of votes cast in the SD-11 recall election versus SD-3 in Pueblo: Over 35,000 in Pueblo compared to fewer than 18,000 in Colorado Springs. At least some of that gap must be attributed to impaired access to the vote in El Paso County

    If mail in ballots went out as Coloradans have become accustomed to, especially in rural districts, or if El Passo county had the polls open for early voting the recalled people would have retained their offices.
    The margins of victory in the recalls were tiny and only about 30% of eligible voters had their say.
    Those are the facts.
    Celebrate that if you must but in the next election cycle those seats will go back to the blue side.
    BTW Democrats in both the Colorado House and Senate remain in the majorities and the slightly saner gun laws they passed remain untouched and enforced.

    The Obama Phone?
    No, free "Obamaphones" were part of the new CRA......

    No she wasn't.....

    What is factually correct is that progressives don't care about issues unless they're activists or don't financially gain from casting a vote...

    DWS is never correct because she is as partisan as you can get..... She has an ego the size of the Sun - hence her excuses for the progressives failed attempts at tyrannical "gun control."

    Did you even bother to read the post or the comment to which I was referring?

    Good grief.
