One of Senator Mark Udall’s biggest supporters is taking heat for remarks he made about Colorado. Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been a major contributor to Udall’s campaign, and has teamed with Democrats in the state to bring stricter gun laws to Colorado. Three lawmakers lost their jobs over those new laws. Senate President John Morris and Senator Angela Giron were recalled by voters and Senator Evie Hudak resigned in the face of recall to allow Democrats to retain control in the Senate. When asked about the new laws and their consequences, Bloomberg stated “The NRA went after two or three state Senators in a part of Colorado where I don’t think there’s roads. It’s as far rural as you can get.” Morse represented Colorado Springs the second most populous city in the state, Giron represented Pueblo the 9th most populous city in the state, and Hudak represented a large portion of Jefferson County, the 4th most populous county in the state. Udall’s opponent Cory Gardner is now calling on Udall to clarify his relationship with Bloomberg. Udall has yet to respond. Wild West Radio has also attempted to contact Udall for an interview, but has yet to hear back from his camp. Pictured: left-Mark Udall; right-Michael Bloomberg
