When the polls open in two Colorado state Senate districts tomorrow, one Democratic incumbent who hopes to keep his job will start at a distinct disadvantage. Thatís because Republicans are turning out to vote at a much higher rate than Democrats, according to early vote tallies.

Many Democrats are pro-gun, so the fact that Democrats are voting, shouldn’t give them confidence.

I’m hoping Giron’s lead has to do with maybe weekend bus rallies - they both need to be defeated ...

Good point. I just won’t count on their devotion to their rights overcoming their loyalty to ideology until I see it. Rats are the ultimate sheep.

Never underestimate the ability of the party of fraud and cheating to turn out gypsy, fraud and dead voters.

Or, the fact that illegal Mexican Nationals are pouring across the US southern border (under the watchful eye of US Homeland Security) to vote in support of a fellow socialist like the Mexican government, soon to be the United States of Mexico.

Remember, Obama traveled to Mexico and thanked the Mexican Nationals for voting for him in the last election!

Big question: why were these anti-gun Leftists voted in to begin with?

Even though Republicans don’t really deserve it, the dems are going to get clobbered in this off-year election. I have said it before and I will say it again. The democrat constituency is a bunch of dope-smoking slackers who only show up for national elections or when they think they can get some free goodies.

Me thinks the Democrats have pushed too far: and are learning that Colorado isn’t California..(at least not yet)!

Haven’t I heard this in the November 2012 early voting results before?

What about the Colorado Red Rocks Romney/Ryan rally that supposedly brought in overflowing crowds?

Right — Colorado went Obama anyway.

The problem is that Colorado has a law that if you intend to move to a district, you can vote in that district...

So, this opens the door for vote fraud for the Democrats...

Because they ran as "sensible moderates" and portrayed their Republican opponents as "too far to the right."

If Democrats had the guts to run as who they actually are, they wouldn't win squat and they know it.

Notice that the Wash Post uses a photo of a pro-Morse voter while the article focuses more on there being more anti-Morse voters.

This is how the Left perverts reality. A tactic to keep an eye on in the future.

Ironically, this law was sponsored by Giron and Morse!

The turnout was good when I voted today. And I had to show my ID twice.

Exactly. Articles like this are just calls to battle for the liberals and vote fraud artists.

If it is legal then every gun owner in the state should “intend” same.

Do you have a link to a story on that Obama statement? I’d like to send it to some lib acquaintances of mine.

Does anyone know if there is a website that will post results as they are counted? Or does one have to open up two county web sites - or does CO not count electronically?

Thanks much. With as many stories about Obama out there, it’s sometimes hard to sort through them to find the specific one that you want.
