The secessionist movement in Colorado is reassessing — but not abandoning — its dream of forming a 51st state after voters in six of 11 rural counties rejected the proposal Tuesday.
Eleven rural counties upset over a growing divide with the Democrat-dominated state government are asking voters on the Nov. 5 ballot whether their elected officials should pursue the creation of another state carved from northern Colorado.
Voters in several rural Colorado counties will be asked whether they want to form a new state tentatively named Northern Colorado in the November election, a reaction to the Democrat-controlled state legislature's "war on rural Colorado."
Residents in Weld County, Colo., will vote this November to join eight other counties and form America's 51st state — Northern Colorado.
