Secessionist ‘51st state’ movement gains steam in rural Colorado

"Colorado’s secessionist “51st state” movement gained steam Wednesday as commissioners in an eighth rural county agreed to add the question to their November ballot.

"The three-member Kit Carson County Commission voted unanimously Wednesday to place a referendum on the Nov. 5 ballot asking voters if they support joining other rural counties in splitting off to form a new state, tentatively called Northern Colorado.

"Kit Carson is the latest Colorado county to join the protest movement that has emerged in reaction to the Democratic-controlled state legislature’s aggressive liberal agenda that detractors have dubbed the “war on rural Colorado.”
