We have been excited about the forthcoming recall election that Colorado Senator Evie Hudak was facing. After her staunch stand on gun control and helping push through recent gun control laws in the state the anti-gun senator was facing the
possibility surety that she would lose her job.
Hudak has decided to resign rather than face a recall election, according to the Denver Post.
Two of her gun control cohorts lost their recall elections earlier this year, and it looks like she was sure she would lose her recall as well.
By resigning, Hudak has decided to make sure that a Democrat can be appointed to replace her. Her resignation will allow Democrats to keep their 18-17 majority in the state senate.
According to the Denver Post, Hudak issued the following statement,
“By resigning I am protecting these important new laws for the good of Colorado and ensuring that we can continue looking forward,” Hudak wrote in her resignation letter in regard to her gun votes, which led to the recall effort.
“This is a cowardly way out of the recall,” said Joe Neville, political director for Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, which helped organize the recall effort. “We’re still charging toward Tuesday and no matter what we’ll submit the petition signatures.”
While it might seem great that another anti-gun senator is going out the door, her move was meant only as a cowardly act to go against the will of the people. But at least lawmakers in Colorado are on high alert. Vote for gun control and against the 2nd amendment and your job is up for grabs.
