If the Giron recall moves forward, at least one Republican, retired Pueblo deputy chief of police George Rivera, has said he will challenge her.

Ms. Giron’s campaign, Puebloans for Angela, has raised more than $70,000 to fight the recall, mainly from pro-Democratic groups, including a $35,000 donation from the Sixteen Thirty Fund in Washington. Pueblo Freedom and Rights has raised about $11,000 since launching the recall effort in April, according to campaign-finance reports.

The state’s three gun bills, which become law July 1, would limit ammunition magazine capacity to 15 rounds; mandate background checks for all firearms sales and transfers, including temporary transfers, and require gun buyers to pay for their own background checks. All three were passed with no Republican votes.
