CBS Spotlights Recall of Pro-Gun Control Politicos in Colorado
From the 11 September 2013 edition of CBS This Morning:
BARRY PETERSEN (voice-over): Anti-gun control advocates were jubilant at their victory – the recall of two Democratic state senators. The NRA gave the largest amount to back the recall $360,000 – mostly for ads against Morse.
PETERSEN (off-camera): Did the NRA win?
JOHN MORSE, FMR. COLORADO STATE PRESIDENT: Yes – today.
PETERSEN: They knocked you out?
MORSE: Well, yes.
PETERSEN (voice-over): But those backing the two senators spent seven times more money – $3.2 million – including outside money, like the $350,000 from New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
ANTHONY GARCIA, MORSE RECALL EFFORT ORGANIZER: This isn't the end of it. I've got tons of people saying, we want to keep going. And so do I.
PETERSEN (off-camera): What does this mean for gun control in Colorado?
MORSE: Right. The bills that we passed – 80 percent of the folks think they're a good idea. They're not going to go away. I bet you they never go away.
