Skip to comments.CO Democrats Signing Petition to Recall State Senator Who Backed Gun Control
Posted on 10/16/2013 7:57:57 PM PDT by george76
With organizers working to collect the necessary 18,900 signatures to get the recall of Colorado state Senator Evie Hudak (D-Dist. 19) on the ballot, Breitbart News spoke with Mike McAlpine, the man behind the recall effort.
When asked how the collection of signatures was going, he said "very, very strong." Moreover, he said 15 percent of the signatories at this point have been Democrats, which "is very encouraging."
McAlpine and his fellow volunteers have a 60-day window in which to collect all the needed signatures, which began on October 4 and ends on December 3 at 5 PM.
He also stressed they are trying to get all the signatures they can right now during the early stages "in order to beat bad winter weather" and possible "legal opposition from the senator's supporters." McAlpine anticipates such opposition will be forthcoming as the number of signatures grows.
Donations for the recall effort can be given through the website, RecallHudakToo.com.

One piece of good news on a very bad day for those who actually believe we have a constitution here which means what it says.
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
Good news on a rotten day.
Mike McAlpine is a mountain of a man as his last name implies. It’s nice to read about someone on our side who is not defeatist and not ready to give up the fight. Stay hard core Mike; stay hard core FReepers! Don’t allow yourselves to be discouraged.
Ya, but this is a bigger deal:
Douglas County Republicans:
Please be aware that things just “got real” in the school board election.
A senior Obama campaign strategist is apparently involved in our community, and offering to pay canvassers $12/hour to knock on doors in Douglas County “supporting progressive school board candidates” (http://thecoloradoobserver.com/2013/10/senior-obama-strategist-takes-leading-role-in-douglas-county-school-board-race/). Craig Hughes’ bio calls him “one of the five most influential Democrats in Colorado” and says that “Most recently, he served as Senior Advisor for Barack Obamas Colorado campaign... This was a repeat engagement for Hughes, who also served as Senior Advisor for the 2008 Obama campaign in Colorado.” (http://www.hilltoppublicsolutions.com/about/team_craig.html)
And now his political consulting firm is looking to hire canvassers to support “progressive” school board candidates in Douglas County.
This is extremely important to Colorado as we are just 1 seat from regaining control of the Senate and this liberal idiot needs to go!
Thanks for the info! As a Douglas resident I think it’s time we take corrective action against his communist efforts!
For those that don’t know, Douglas County, Colorado, has had their school system kicking the pants off the communist teacher’s unions and they are desperate to regain control. We have unusually better schools than most and they don’t like it.
