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)
