Colorado Tries to Split, 51st State?

Posted: Updated:

A 51st state could soon be on the horizon and it wouldn't add any extra real-estate to the Lower 48.

If all goes as planned for Northern Colorado residents this could be the case.

On Tuesday voters in 11 Northern Colorado counties will decide whether they want their commissioners to move forward with a plan to break away from the state.

This vote comes after a group called "Club 20" spoke out. They believe they've been ignored by the Denver-centric state legislature.

The group claims lawmakers passed a liberal agenda on matters like civil unions, energy policy and gun control.

Critics of this plan believe congress wouldn't allow it if the movement makes it to that point.
