Another Recall Election On The Way: Democrats May Lose Control Of Colorado Senate Over Gun Control


Remember when Democrats were declaring that Republicans would pay a huge price at the ballot box for opposing gun control? Well, that theory has been tested in Colorado where two Democrats have already lost their jobs and : now a third Democrat may be in trouble.

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.

…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 three-way race that featured a Libertarian who likely drew votes from her Republican challenger,” the Denver Post reports.

Hudnak’s victory in her last election was basically a happy accident for her. It’s very unlikely to happen again and so if they manage to collect those signatures, it’s probably game over for her and the Democrat control of the Senate in the state.
