On Tuesday, 11 of Colorado's 64 counties are expected to vote on seceding from the state and creating a 51st American state, the state of North Colorado. What's driving the counties to seek separation is the divide between Denver and the state's more rural areas.
Nevertheless, "Any effort for the counties to secede from the state would first require voter approval, followed by a green light from the state legislature, the governor and U.S. Congress. Critics of the secession initiative point out that it's unlikely lawmakers would approve the split," Talking Points Memo wrote on Monday.
