Colorado: New effort looks to target Senator Evie Hudak

Following the successful results in September, a new petition effort is targeting Democratic Senator Evie Hudak. The first try against Hudak failed. If Hudak would be removed, the Republicans would gain control of the Senate.

Petitioners need 18,900 signatures in 60 days. As a comparison, 16,198 signatures were handed in against Morse (10,137 were verified). In the Giron recall, about 13,500 were handed in (12,648 were verified). So this is a much tougher hill to climb. Note this about Hudak's district and why she is being targeted:
Hudak’s metro-area district mirrors Morse’s in that it’s divided into thirds among Democrats, Republicans and unaffilated voters. Hudak won the seat in 2012 by about 580 votes with a third-party candidate on the ballot.
