Will the school tax ($950M) be voted down?

From the Denver Business Journal, with 1487 votes so far.

Are the backers running scared?

Bill and Melinda Gates, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and a charity founded by Steve Jobs’ widow are among major new donors to Colorado Commits to Kids, the campaign committee that’s pushing to pass Amendment 66. The committee reported $2.5 million in donations during the last two weeks.

I’m not sure what they will do with this much more money at this late date. If they run those same TV ads (with the kids in the gym) any more our TV sets will start to melt down. When they call in the big pockets at the last minute (election in one week) it must be desperation.
