Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the capitol, organizers wishing to recall a Democrat in the state senate are back with a name that sounds like an homage to a Hollywood sequel.
“Recall Hudak Too” is the moniker under which a group will re-try to collect enough signatures to recall Sen. Evie Hudak (D-Westminster).
The first effort to oust Hudak was scrapped after this year’s legislative session, while gun rights activists focused on recalling Senate President John Morse (D-Colorado Springs) and Sen. Angela Giron (D-Pueblo).
In a close district, Morse was expected to be vulnerable, but political watchers in Colorado were surprised when Giron lost what was considered to be a safe Democratic seat.
Hudak, who gained the ire of conservatives during the debate over gun control, is not in a safe district.
With a libertarian candidate splitting the vote, Hudak won her seat in 2012 with only a 47 percent plurality, beating Republican Lang Sias by fewer than 600 votes.
