    But I thought Bloomberg said he won in Colorado? Surely he can win bigger if he comes back and spends more.

    Sounds like he just signaled his concern over anti-gunner groups and money altering their chances of swinging control in the state elections.

    Sounds like a "dinner bell" invitation to Bloomers and all anti-gunners like him, actually. Dumb, politically. He's effectively asking for it, showing weakness.

    "Colorado is a state that people like to be themselves and solve their own problems," the Democratic governor said in an interview with Capital Download, USA TODAY's weekly video newsmaker series. "They don't really like outside organizations meddling in their affairs, and maybe the NRA gets a pass on that.
    They certainly welcomed bloomberg and his money last time.

    Hickenlooper's running from the majority now. He has issued numerous meaningless and disingenuous "mea culpas" since the backlash started, but he has yet to show he's changed courses. This is just another political stunt meant to save his own skin, and maybe the majority in the Senate.

    Personally, I believe he's late to the game, and his maneuverings and posturings will have little if any effect on his base, and will enliven his opponents. They smell blood. His blood. The election will tell the tale.

    It would appear Governor Hinkenlooper learned some valuable lessons through the results of that welcoming.

    Hickenblooper has sign several pieces of legislation that have made him a little unpopular. He is sweating reelection.

    Recall Elections do have consequences.

    Let's hope the two in CO are the gift that just keeps on giving for 2A rights and the upcoming legislative year, State and Federal.

    Thank you CO for 'Standing Your Ground' on the 2A and other key Anti-Regressive Progressive issues.

    It's fun watching the Colorado governor trying to crawfish his way out his own morass.
