Colorado: GOP leaders opposed recall efforts

Here's a look at the opposition from Republican leaders and gun rights groups that recall organizers faced when they first tried to push the Colorado recalls. Note this comment from GOP Chairman Ryan Call, which, based on the history of recalls, is straight out incorrect:
Call declined to speak about the details of conversations he had with organizers and elected county leaders but said recalls cannot be driven by a perceived partisan advantage. 
"That's why these recalls were successful," Call said. "They were not driven by one political party; they were really a reflection of grassroots support. The party's job and role is to step in once there is a recall effort and once we have a Republican candidate. Our job as a party is to support Republican candidates."
