PUEBLO — Former U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar campaigned for Pueblo state Sen. Angela Giron in the final days before a recall election over her support for new gun restrictions.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports (http://goo.gl/CM7D9A ) that Salazar spoke to about 30 of Giron's volunteers Sunday at the Steelworkers Hall. The former U.S. senator told the group that he thinks Giron has been a "fighter for the American dream."

Giron and Democratic Senate President John Morse in Colorado Springs are facing recall elections Sept. 10. They supported new laws in response to last year's mass shootings, including limiting the size of ammunition magazines and universal background checks. No Republicans voted for the measures.

Recall backers argue the gun measures went too far and that Giron and Morse failed to listen to their constituents.
