DENVER — Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2013 — Gov. John Hickenlooper released this statement tonight about the recall elections in Pueblo and El Paso counties:
“Our democracy gives the people the right to vote for their elected representatives. Tonight, voters in two Senate districts have spoken. We are certainly disappointed by the outcome of the recall elections.
“It’s now time we refocus again on what unites Coloradans -- creating jobs, educating our children, creating a healthier state -- and on finding ways to keep Colorado moving forward.”
