DENVER (AP) The NRA is increasing financial support with $250,000 to try to recall two Colorado Democratic lawmakers who voted for new gun restrictions this year.

A campaign finance report released Tuesday covering Aug. 23 to Aug. 29 shows the NRA's new contribution to the races. The organization's total contribution so far is about $361,700.

Senate President John Morse of Colorado Springs and Pueblo Sen. Angela Giron are facing recalls Sept. 10 over their support for limiting the size of ammunition magazines and universal background checks. Their campaigns had yet to post their latest campaign finance reports Tuesday evening.

But last week's filings showed Pueblo United for Angela has raised $586,000 and A Whole Lot of People for John Morse $606,000.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg added an additional $350,000 to support the senators.
