Tax hikes for education in Colorado lose big

Colorado voters Tuesday resoundingly defeated an attempt to raise state income and sales taxes to fund education.

With 83 percent of precincts reporting, Proposition 103 was going down in flames across the state, with 36 percent in favor to 63.9 percent against.

That was also true in Denver, where the measure was failing 45.7 percent in favor to 54.3 percent against, in nearly complete returns.
