The two recall races in Colorado have not received a lot of attention in the national media, but they sure will tomorrow. One of the Democratic State Senators, Senate President John Morse, whose district included part of Colorado Springs, has conceded the race: The Denver Post reports:
Colorado Senate President John Morse thanked and urged fellow lawmakers to continue fighting Tuesday as voters ousted him from office for his support for stricter Colorado gun laws. "It has been an honor to represent the 11th Senate District," said Morse, who is the first Colorado lawmaker to be recalled and thrown out of office. "It's been hugely rewarding." With about 86 percent of returns counted in the historic recall election of Democratic Senate President John Morse show 52 percent have voted "yes" and 48 percent "no." Morse called the legislative session where he and Democratic colleagues passed stricter new gun laws a successful one.
