The Pueblo Chieftain's Peter Roper reports, with much of the story behind a paywall:
Secretary of State Scott Gessler gave a crowd of about 100 local Republicans a quick lesson Tuesday on how to recall state Sen. Angela Giron, D-Pueblo, over her support for gun-control legislation earlier this week.
Gessler reminded the crowd he is running for reelection but he also addressed the obvious sentiment in the room that Giron should be recalled over the gun issue. He was speaking to the monthly meeting of the Pueblo County Republican Party.
“A recall election is brutal so you need to get all your ducks in a row,” he advised. “You don’t want to wait until the clock’s started to get organized.”
Roper says, and he's probably right, that Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler wasn't "advocating" a recall against Sen. Angela Giron–especially since the logistics of recalling any of the lawmakers threatened with that during the gun safety legislation debate are difficult enough to render it a fool's errand. Given the Pueblo Chieftain's oddly personal dust-up with Sen. Giron over this legislation, though, it's not really a surprise that Roper omitted that the logistics of recalling a state legislator are virtually impossible: everyone knows that this will be about challenging her in 2014. Roper does a great job giving the names of the recall organizers, though, and a great quote vilifying Sen. Giron. It should go without saying that after the recent flap with the Chieftain's general manager that every story about Giron should be evaluated for bias. This story doesn't exactly resolve in their favor.
In the case of Scott Gessler, of course, no such evaluation is necessary.
