Over 20,000 people have already voted in the recall election against state Sen. Angela Giron (D) (Denver Post). About half that have voted in state Senate President John Morse’s (D) recall. (Denver Post)
Turnout continues to favor Democrats in Giron’s district and Republicans in Morse’s district.
Meanwhile, the last set of campaign finance reports before the recall showed that the elections have drawn about $3.5 million, with nearly $3 million of that collected by the groups opposing the recall. Nearly $368,000 of the pro-recall side’s $540,000 came from out of the state, while the anti-recall money was split about evenly between in- and out-of-state donors. “Almost all of the outside money collected by” the pro-recall forces came from the NRA, which gave $360,000. The anti-recall side was boosted by major six-figure donations from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) and Los Angeles philanthropist Eli Broad. (Denver Post)
