The Vulgar Animal Posing With A Cute Mascot…
Colorado gun rights advocates, coming off two successful efforts to recall Democratic state senators over votes to strengthen gun control laws, began collecting signatures in a third district over the weekend in hopes of booting another incumbent out of office.
And this time, the stakes are bigger than a single Senate seat: Control of the entire legislative chamber hangs in the balance.
Recall organizers won certification Friday from the Colorado Secretary of State’s office to begin collecting signatures in the effort to oust state Sen. Evie Hudak, a two-term Democrat from a district just north of Denver. The group must collect 18,900 valid signatures by Dec. 3 to force the recall question onto the ballot.
Hudak “has infringed upon our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. She has voted to make all citizens less safe and to drive hundreds of jobs from Colorado,” Mike McAlpine, a spokesman for the group collecting signatures, said in a statement e-mailed to the Denver Post.
