Colorado: Recall effort against State Representative who was main sponsor of gun bill moves forward

State Representative Tom Sullivan (D), the sponsor of the gun bill that was one of the motivations for the GOP's wide ranging recall efforts, has now had the petition approved. The recall effort has already met statements of strong opposition from Cole Wist, the Republican who Sullivan defeated in 2018. Wist said that the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, the major backers of the recall effort, referred to the Republicans "owns the Colorado Republican Party."

Sullivan's son was killed in the 2012 Aurora movie theater shooting during a showing of the Dark Knight. Petitioner would need 10,035 signatures by July 12.

Sullivan is the first State Rep to have the petitions against him approved. Petitioners are claiming to seek the recall of 12 state legislators.
