Sonia Negrete-Winn said she managed to collect 800 signatures in three days, but it’s not the 1,000 valid signatures that are due to the secretary of state’s office today.
Winn said she doesn’t support the recall — which could cost Pueblo County as much as $200,000 — but she wanted to have a Democrat on the ballot so a Republican doesn’t take Giron’s seat if Giron loses. Giron, a Democrat, has served in the Senate since 2010.
Voters in Senate District 3 on Sept. 10 will be be asked whether Giron be recalled and, if so, who should replace her. At this point, it appears Rivera will be on the only name on the ballot. Senate District 3, which includes about 90 percent of Pueblo County, is about 50 percent Democratic, according to secretary of state records.
Also facing a recall on Sept. 10 is Senate President John Morse, a Colorado Springs Democrat, who led his caucus in voting for the gun measures.
