Colorado: Giron cites other issues/Koch Brothers for recall campaign

NBC News has a detailed look at the Colorado recall. And the Huffington Post looks at Giron's claims about some of the other issues motivating the recall:
Giron said the recall involves more than retaliation for her support of stricter gun laws. She drew the ire of conservatives by supporting a bill that would require electric cooperatives to double renewable energy standards and by backing legislation that granted in-state college tuition to students who are undocumented immigrants. Groups and individuals opposed to those measures have joined the gun lobby to oust Giron and Morse from office. "

As I look at the money that's being spent on this recall, both in mine and President John Morse, where you have Koch brothers spending money in here … I think it's a lot about Democrats vs. Republicans, and has grown very partisan," Giron said.
