El Paso County Republican Party spokesperson Daniel Cole says his party is gearing up for a possible recall election for Senate President John Morse.

While the party ordinarily chooses candidates via caucus and primary, in this case it will select a contender less formally. Party Chairman Jeff Hays invited all 62 Senate District 11 precinct leaders to a May 29 meeting to discuss possible candidates and strategies.

The Party also will draw on its volunteers for the campaign effort.

The recall campaign against Morse turned in 16,046 signatures, more than twice what was needed. But Secretary of State Scott Gessler must confirm that enough signatures are valid in order to compel an election.
