Is This What They Mean By "Outside Interests"?

One of the false accusations that Colorado State Senators John Morse (D-Colorado Springs) and Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) have made against those calling for their recall is that it was instigated by out-of-state interests. Of course, by this, they mean the NRA and other gun rights organizations. This is rich coming from two politicians who are being financially backed by Mayor Bloomberg and who have done his bidding.

Pueblo Freedom and Rights takes this issue on headfirst in one of their two TV ads running. As Colorado Peak Politics notes:
The first spot pushes back against the lies coming from Giron’s campaign that her opponents are somehow out-of-state interests, or “extremists from Denver.” It features the three plumbers from Pueblo who initiated and ran the recall effort speaking direct to camera earnestly about their grassroots effort.

The ad has a charm about it — far from a slickly produced spot, it’s a raw, amateurish ad that underscores the grassroots nature of the recall effort. No political professionals are they, but everyday citizens fed up with their rights being violated by a Senator who won’t listen.

Look at the ad below. These three guys certainly don't appear to be big money, out of state interests.

In their second ad, they ask Sen. Giron if she will protect the Second Amendment rights of her constituents. She replies that it isn't a yes or no answer.

If you are a voter in either of the two Senators' districts, you need to remember you must check "Yes" for recall as well as voting for the replacement. Jim Geraghty of National Review has a great guide to the recall here.
