Retired Naval and Air Force officer, Bernie Herpin collects more than enough signatures to take on John Morse in Recall Election.


Colorado Springs, CO - Today, Bernie Herpin turned in his nominating petitions to the Secretary of State, taking the next step in the effort to replace John Morse in the historic recall election to be held September 10.

I’m honored to stand as the only Constitutional defender on the ballot to replace John Morse when he is recalled on September 10th,” said Herpin.

Herpin collected more than 1600 signatures on his nominating petitions.

Only 1000 Republican signatures from Senate District 11 are needed to appear on the recall ballot.

“The outpouring of support from Manitou Springs to Powers Boulevard is overwhelming,” said Herpin.

I’m excited to listen to all citizens of Senate District 11 and let them know they can recall John Morse and replace him with a senator who’ll defend the Constitution and actually respect their concerns,” continued Herpin.

Nearly three weeks ago, Bernie Herpin earned 62.5% of the vote in the Republican Party’s process to select one candidate to run in the John Morse recall election.

“Whether it’s our freedom of religion, freedom of association, freedom of the press, or right to keep and bear Arms, every day we see politicians like John Morse eroding the rights of law-abiding citizens.”

“In the Navy and Air Force, I took an oath to defend the Constitution and as a private citizen, I have fought for our local community. If elected, I will continue to do so in the State Senate,” concluded Herpin.

Bernie Herpin has been endorsed by dozens of state and local community leaders.
