John Morse

In this photo taken May 24, 2013, Democratic State Senate President John Morse works at the Democratic Party offices in Colorado Springs, Colo., where Morse and his staff are planning their weekend strategy to encourage voters not to sign petitions for his recall. Gun-rights activists with support of the National Rifle Association are seeking Morse’s ouster because of his support for new gun laws that restrict ammunition magazines and expand background checks to private gun sales.
