Colo. governor asks gun-control groups to stay away from latest recall

DENVER — Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has a message for out-of-state gun-control groups: Stay away from the next Colorado recall. Please.

The Democratic governor said Sunday it’s “probably not a bad idea” for gun-control advocates — read, New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg — to refrain from jumping into the state’s latest recall drive, this one against Democratic state Sen. Evie Hudak.

“Colorado is a state that people like to be resourceful themselves and solve their own problems,” said Mr. Hickenlooper in a video interview with USA Today. “They don’t really like outside organizations meddling in their affairs.”

Mr. Hickenlooper’s remarks, made during a weekend trip to Washington, D.C., for the Hero Summit, came as his first public acknowledgment that the Bloomberg strategy may have backfired in Colorado.
