DENVER -- Colorado’s Republican Secretary of State Scott Gessler arrived late to testify at the Senate committee hearing, but he came prepared. A practiced courtroom lawyer, he began slowly. He threw in folksy asides. He answered his own rhetorical questions. And he smiled at the majority-Democratic committee members as he railed against the election-reform bill they all support and that he wants desperately to derail. It was a dramatic moment in Colorado politics that had been building since Gessler took office two years ago.
Latinos in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico marked the 85th anniversary of César Chávez’s birthday with a new oral song, or corrido, that asks policymakers to protect the Colorado River.
