Colorado: Was the Giron recall loss not for gun control reasons? WashPost claims that focus group showed personal unpopularity to blame

One of the biggest mysteries of the Colorado recall fight was how Angela Giron, who was in the safer seat with a 15% Democratic Party advantage, got blown out of the water in the recall race. John Morse was in a much more hostile district, yet he just barely lost. Giron lost by almost 12 points

According to a focus group, Giron herself was unpopular (47% disapproval rating), with Democrats believing that she "went Denver" and was taking orders from party bosses. She also lost some women voters by claiming to vote for bills because "she was a strong Latina."

Giron is apparently also looking to run for Secretary of State.
