(HorizonPost.com) – Organizers attempting to recall Colorado’s Democratic governor, Jared Polis, over what they viewed as excessively rigid COVID-19 restrictions failed to garner the minimum number of signatures required to get the measure brought to a vote. This follows an attempt by State Representative Patrick Neville to strike down those orders through the court system, which also failed.
Lori Cutunilli, who was one of the backers of the recall attempt said that they would be filing for an extension to get the signatures. The reason for the request, Cutunilli said, was they had been caught in a Catch-22 because the orders themselves made it nearly impossible to reach the needed threshold.
The group seeking to recall Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said it was asking for an extension, but it's unclear how they were pursuing one. https://t.co/Rr7tvI0uNn

The battle between Liberals who prefer mask mandates and lockdowns and Conservatives who advocate keeping businesses open and people moving had a different outcome when the Michigan Supreme Court ruled against Governor Gretchen Witmer (D). If Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden is ultimately officially declared the winner of the presidential election, Liberal governors and mayors are likely to take that as a sign to continue or increase their draconian measures.
