DENVER, Colo. (AP) -Colorado's legislative recalls over gun control got more complicated Wednesday when a county clerk vowed to appeal a ruling giving third-party candidates more time to get on the Sept. 10 ballots.
Meanwhile, Colorado's top elections chief declined Wednesday to appeal the ruling. Secretary of State Scott Gessler set a Thursday hearing to make new rules about running the recalls.
Democratic Sens. Angela Giron of Pueblo and John Morse of Colorado Springs face recall votes after gun-rights activists petitioned them to face voters.
A Denver judge threw the recall elections into disarray Monday when he ruled against elections administrators. Administrators wanted the judge to overlook a constitutional provision allowing candidates up to 15 days before a recall election to qualify for ballots. Elections officials say that provision won't allow mail-in voting.
