After similar efforts fail, Garcia last Democrat being targeted for recall

Colorado Senate President Leroy Garcia is now the lone Democrat being targeted for recall after efforts to oust Colorado Senators Pete Lee, D-Colorado Springs, and Brittany Pettersen, D-Lakewood, ended in failure on Tuesday.

Organizers of the efforts against Lee and Pettersen informed the Colorado Secretary of State’s office they would not be turning in signatures seeking special elections in Senate Districts 11 and 22, marking the most recent failures by Colorado conservatives and activists to remove Democratic officials from office.

Despite the efforts coming up short — as did prior initiatives to recall Gov. Jared Polis and state Rep. Tom Sullivan, D-Centennial — local supporters of the Committee to Recall Leroy Garcia say they are not deterred by the results and still believe recalling Garcia is a goal within reach.

“From what I’m hearing on the ground, people think it’s possible,” said Marla Reichert, Pueblo County GOP chairwoman. “They’re getting great responses when they go out to gather signatures.”
