DENVER, CO (KDVR) – A collection of rural counties in Northern Colorado have begun informally discussing seceding from Colorado to form a 51st state.
Sean Conway, the Weld County commissioner, is leading the collection of counties such as Weld, Morgan, Logan, Sedgwick, Phillips, Washington, Yuma and Kit Carson counties in forming the new state.
These primarily Republican counties feel as though the Democrat-controlled legislature has been ignoring the values of rural counties when passing recent legislation including gun control measures, expanding oil and gas production and creating new renewable energy standards for rural areas.
