Scott Gessler says voter registration initiative not a response to critics

On the heels of an initiative designed to weed out immigrants who may be illegally registered to vote in the November election, Colorado Secretary of Scott Gessler has launched a campaign aimed at increasing voter registration in the state. The $850,000 effort unveiled yesterday is not, however, a direct response to his critics, Gessler says.
