Over 100,000 at Obama rally in Denver today

Another wow event. The Rocky Mountain News liveblogged Obama’s event in Denver this afternoon:

Denver police are estimating rally attendance at more than 100,000 people.

That could put today’s crowd here in Denver at the largest ever for an Obama event in the United States. The crowd in St. Louis, which had been the largest, was comprised of about 100,000 people.

Obama had a big day in New Mexico yesterday — especially compared to McCain:

Via Playbook, a brutal side-by-side yesterday in New Mexico:

Crowd for Senator Obama in Albuquerque, N.M., last night: 35,000 inside the venue and another 10,000-15,000 outside.

Crowd for Senator McCain in Albuquerque, N.M., yesterday: 1,400 according to the McCain campaign, 1,000 or less according to reporters.

Got this photo of Denver from the Obama campaign website:
