State Sen. John Morse, who serves as the Senate majority leader, will kick of his re-election campaign at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 9, at the Senior Center, 1514 N. Hancock Ave.
Morse, a Democrat from El Paso County, promises food and good friends will be on hand.
Morse has collected $45,158 in contributions.
One thing the Democrat has going for him is there are now more Dems in Senate District 11 than Republicans. In 2006, the split was: Dems - 19,461; Republicans - 21,496, and Unaffiliated - 24,018.
As of April, the split was: Dems - 21,842; Republicans - 18,613, and Unaffiliated - 24,466.
Of course, there are more unaffiliated voters than either of the parties have, so they likely will have a big say in whether Morse stays in office or someone else takes his place.
