Nearly 50 officers and precinct leaders with the El Paso County Republican Party voted today to nominate Bernie Herpin in the Senate District 11 recall effort of Democrat John Morse. Herpin received 30 votes, while candidate Jaxine Bubis received 18. Bubis is expected to withdraw from the race after the two signed an agreement that would name one person as the GOP nominee. According to a press release from the El Paso County Republican Party, the county’s Clerk and Recorder oversaw the process at the expense of the party.

The Denver Post reports today’s process occurred as attorneys were filing an appeal against the recall effort.

  1. James Bowen says:

    How many of the right wing tax exempt social clubs will be financially supporting the GOP candidate?

  2. Colorado says:

    It is not a good idea to cater to the NRA and remove officials elected by all. If you dont like a candidate, find someone and run them at election time and quit making voters pay for the fanatics among us.
