    Yet Another Anti-Gun Democrat May Face Recall Election in Colorado – This Time, Control of the Senate Is at Stake

    Fed-up Colorado residents voted to recall Democratic state Sens. John Morse and Angela Giron last month, leaving Democrats with a single-seat majority in the Senate. Unfortunately for the Democrats, it isn’t over.
    Volunteers in the state are currently working to get enough signatures to force a recall vote on anti-gun Democrat Sen. Evie Hudak. This time, a successful recall could potentially mean shifting control of the Colorado Senate to Republicans.

    One of the men behind the renewed recall effort, Mike McAlpine, said the initiative isn’t just about gun control, it’s also about making sure the people are represented.
    “We’re not being heard. We have legislation without any real representation,” McAlpine said.
    Voters unsuccessfully attempted to recall Hudak earlier this year, but after the recalls of her two Democratic colleagues over their gun control votes, her opponents are even more confident the second attempt will be different.
    Hudak has also recently made some political missteps that certainly will not work to her advantage.
    At a gun control hearing in March, Hudak told rape survivor Amanda Collins that “statistics are not on your side, even if you had a gun.” She also told the rape survivor “if you had had a gun, then he would have been able to get that from you and possibly use it against you.”
    Her comments garnered national media attention and wreaked havoc on Hudak’s political career.
    “Hudak won re-election to the seat last year by about 580 votes in a a three-way race that featured a Libertarian who likely drew votes from her Republican challenger,” the Denver Post reports.
    Responding to the recall effort being mounted against her, Hudak said she “voted the way I believe my constituents wanted.”
    Hudak’s critics need to get about 18,900 valid signatures to the secretary of state’s office by Dec. 3 in order to force a recall vote.
    The Denver Post has more details on the recall effort and the people behind it.
    It warms my heart every time another grinning Progressive is kicked to the curb.
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB

    Now if we could just get some recall efforts mounted to yank people like McCain and Reid and Pelosi.
