DENVER (AP) – Colorado officials have scheduled a hearing July 3 to address a protest of a petition to recall state Sen. Angela Giron, of Pueblo.

Giron is the second Colorado Democrat facing a potential recall election after supporting new gun control measures that take effect Monday.

Senate President John Morse also is fighting a recall effort. A hearing on a protest of the petition for Morse’s recall is scheduled Thursday.

Supporters of both senators contend petitioners failed to expressly call for an election, as the state constitution requires, when they collected signatures seeking to oust the two.
