We need to focus on the McLachlan recall.

If we start targeting Hudak and others, the union money will flood in, and we’ll accomplish nothing.

While I agree that the battles must be chosen carefully Hudak is in a split district and has a good chance of going away. I don't think that all the money in the world will help McLachlan or Morse.

Hudak didn't help her cause any with the following either:

In 2013 during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on pending gun legislation Senator Hudak uncomfortably denigrated the testimony and feelings of a rape survivor, Amanda Collins, who was testifying about her attack, explaining that she had wished she would have had a firearm to defend herself from her rapist, and how she could have prevented the attack from occurring if she had been armed. Senator Hudak responded to Collins' testimony, calling her story “unsettling,” then went on to respond to Collins by stating without supporting numbers or statistics that “actually, statistics are not on your side, even if you had a gun you would have still been raped.” [8] [9] [10] Senator Hudak went on to say: “You said that you were a martial arts student, I mean person, experienced in taekwondo, and yet because this individual was so large, was able to overcome you even with your skills, and chances are that if you had had a gun, then he would have been able to get that from you and possibly use it against you.” Collins replied: “Respectfully senator, you weren’t there. Had I been carrying concealed, he wouldn’t have known I had my weapon; and I was there. I know without a doubt in my mind at some point I would’ve been able to stop my attack by using my firearm.”
