Pueblo Democrat wants on recall ballot

Sonia Negrete-Winn isn’t trying to defeat state Sen. Angela Giron, D-Pueblo, in the Sept. 10 special election.

The 43-year-old Democrat said she is trying to petition onto the special election ballot to make sure there is a Democratic candidate to vote for if a majority of voters decide to recall Giron in that election.

“I’m telling voters to vote against recall,” Negrete-Winn said Thursday after receiving her candidate petitions from the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office. “But I also want to make sure there is a Democrat on the ballot as an alternative (to Republican George Rivera).”

Negrete-Winn has only until Monday afternoon to collect the signatures of 1,000 registered Democratic voters in Giron’s district and turn them into the state office.
