We’ve already reported that Colorado State Senate President, and one of the architects of Colorado’s anti-gun laws that were passed earlier this year has conceded his recall election and is OUT as state senator.
Colorado pro-gun activists appear to be 2 for 2 on their recall efforts.
This is a massive win for gun rights on a national level as many saw these local races as a nation referendum on gun rights.
Initially it appeared Giron might survive her recall bought, as early vote numbers had her solidly leading the recall effort. However, as the night wore on her number got worse and worse with her ultimately losing.
Both sides of the gun debate at the national level got involved in the local race.
According to the NY Times, billionaires Michael Bloomberg and Eli Broad have each donated over $250,000 to defending the anti-gun senators during the recall bid.
The NRA’s contribution was in the $100,000 range, with total donations from conservative outlets estimated in the half a million dollar range.
