Embattled Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters’ latest legal challenge to her primary loss in the Colorado Secretary of State’s race has pulled in Montrose County.

Montrose County Clerk and Recorder Tressa Guynes, along with all other county clerks, is named in Peters’ Wednesday lawsuit over the recount in the GOP primary for secretary of state that, according to initial results, confirmed candidate Pam Anderson’s definitive win.
