Republicans are not only going for the recall of Evie Hudak, they are also going for the control of the Colorado Senate. Others tried to recall her at the same time that Giron and Morse were recalled. They were not able to get enough signatures, as they were not as well organized as they other two campaigns. This time they are prepared.
There are two things standing in their way. The first is to get enough signatures and the second is to keep the libertarian candidates out of the race. Hudak won her last election by the thinnest of margins. She won by 580 votes but the libertarian candidate got over 4800 votes. No word yet on whether Lang Sias would enter the race again but Lloyd Sweeny, the libertarian candidate says he's ready to go again.
Mike McAlpine, a beekeeper from Arvada, who is registered as an unaffiliated voter is one of those helping to lead the recall movement. He is receiving the bulk of his backing from Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, the state's biggest anti gun control group. Money did not play a part in the last recalls, as the democrats outspent the republicans 6-1 but still lost both races.
Hudak has more than just the gun laws working against her, although she did become famous for chastising a rape victim by suggesting that having a gun wouldn't have prevented her rape. She was also in the middle of the water rights bill, which has led to between 10 and 12 counties' efforts to secede from Colorado .
McAlpine has about 50 volunteers showing up every day and they are checking all the signatures on the petitions to make sure the signers are real and eligible to vote in that district.
Some dislike the constant recall of sitting elected officials, while others see it as a way to make sure their elected officials are representing them.
