    And also with Pueblo, the precincts will vary wildly compared to El Paso county and Colorado Springs, since it's a predominantly military town due to Ft. Carson.

    Looks like we got a 50/50 split. I knew Pueblo would be a tough nut to crack for a Republican. Certainly nothing definitive.

    Update...

    Just read this. It looks like the Senate Leader is toast:
    That pretty much does it. Hard for Morse to make up 726 vote deficit with just 2,581 votes outstanding.

    John Morse is now giving his concession speech........:D

    Congratulations to all the hard workers who helped this come about.
    Hopefully the other foot will drop as well.

    This makes me smile.

    I bet he's blaming the Evil Gun Industry for unfairly targeting him for trying to make his constituents safe using common sense gun legislation that did not impact anyone's 2nd Amendment rights and has objectively made Coloradoans safer...

    Or something. Maybe Bloomberg will hire him.

    What was it Morse said a few weeks back? Oh, yes: "I have already been elected twice, I am excited by the prospect of being elected a third time." Sorry Johnny, but the people have spoken.

    DEFINITELY right about too early to predict. 93% reporting for Morse, which stands at 51.0% yes / 48.9 % no, with Giron at 25% reporting with a drastic change at 56.9% yes / 43.0% no..


    ****EDIT*****

    Same percentages for Giron, with 43% reporting.


    Site is showing Morse recall is a "Yes".


    Thank you so much, fellow Coloradans....




    You just made history.

    Way to go Colorado! It's nice to see politicians being held accountable for going against their constituencies to pursue a personal (or out of state) agenda. Not just a good day for Colorado, but it's a message to all bad politicians.

    .

    Either that, or I heard the Puebloans had a big, juicy slice of humble pie with her name on it. Morse's already horked down his piece before it got cold.
