Denver • Early results suggest one Colorado lawmaker is in trouble in the state's first- ever legislative recall election prompted by new gun laws.

Early voters have backed recalling Senate President John Morse 52-to-48 percent. That tally accounts for about 45 percent of the vote and doesn't include voters who went to the polls Tuesday on the final day of voting.

Very limited results are available so far for Sen. Angela Giron. Only about 2 percent of the vote has been reported in her district, and about 70 percent of those voters voted against recalling her.

Gun rights activists launched the recalls against the lawmakers over their support for stricter gun control laws in the state.
