28,000 Members and Counting: Facebook Group Seeking Recall of Colorado Governor Grows
By Chris Mills Rodrigo
A Facebook group aimed at recalling Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) has amassed almost 30,000 members.
The private group had at least 28,525 members as of Monday. It's unclear how many of them are registered voters in Colorado.
Tom Good, the registered agent for a fundraising arm involved in the recall effort, told the Greeley Tribune that the Facebook group has no party affiliation.
“[There’s] currently no involvement whatsoever by the [Colorado] GOP,” he told the Colorado newspaper. “I plan to keep it that way, if I can. … No party affiliation here; just good, hard-working Coloradans who want to save their state from this overreaching agenda.”
The page has gone by previous names including Recall Hickenlooper 2017, referring to then-Gov. John Hickenlooper (D), who is now a 2020 presidential candidate. It was also once called Keeping Colorado Officials Accountable.
