Early Voting Turnout in Colorado Recall on Par with Presidential Levels

Washington DC - -(  Early voting in Colorado’s recall elections is being described as on par with the kind of the turnout polling officials see for a presidential election.

Many onlookers believe this does not bode well for state senators Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) and John Morse (D-Colo. Springs), as it seems a continuation of the passion that drove the petition process for the recall election to begin with.

According to Fox News lines in Morse’s El Paso County district during early voting were so long on September 5 that they had to open voting centers early on September 6 2013.

Keep in mind, more people signed a petition to recall Morse than voted for him in the last election.

Moreover, in Giron’s Pueblo County district over 7,000 people voted in the first three days of early voting alone. This is the same district which turned in 13,500 signatures on a recall petition although they only needed 11,500 to get the measure on the ballot.

But opinions vary on what is motivating voters at this time. Morse confidently says he believes the large turnout is indicative of supporters coming out to keep him in office: “I have already been elected twice, I am excited by the prospect of being elected a third time.”

    1. More people signed a petition to recall Morse than voted for him in the last election ? I would say that gungrabbing scum needs to start looking for another line of work ! Maybe that bloomberg scum will hire him on !

    2. I hope both of these anti people gets the boot and gets kicked out of office for what they have done to the people and to the Constitution. They should be tried for treason against the people.

    3. The bottom line is if you run on a lie, you need to be recalled. When you say one thing and do another, as Obama did in his 2nd election, it is time for a re-election recall. If you have to run on a lie, you know you can’t win on the truth. Kick them out and keep them out.This should be the same as committing a crime in office, but Obama has done that over and over, and no problem for the democrats.

    4. Yeah, well they’re out. Let that be a message to the rest of the traitors in our CONgress…

      “COLORADO SPRINGS — Two Colorado Democrats who provided crucial support for a slate of tough new gun-control laws were voted out of office on Tuesday in a recall vote widely seen as a test of popular support for gun restrictions after mass shootings in a Colorado movie theater and a Connecticut elementary school.”
