  • Bloomberg Disses Rural Colorado: 'I Don't Think There's Roads' in Colorado Springs or Pueblo

    Breitbart ^ | 10 Jul 2014 | Charlie Spiering
    Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg scoffed at rural Colorado’s reaction to gun control during an interview with Rolling Stone in this month’s magazine, suggesting that only the parts of the country without even the most basic components of civilization would be opposed to more gun control. Bloomberg was asked about the successful recall races of Democratic State Senators in response to the strict gun control legislation passed in the state. “The NRA went after two or three state Senators in a part of Colorado where I don't think there's roads. It's as far rural as you can get,” he said. ......
  • Dems Keep Hudak Issue Alive with Zenzinger Pick ( Colorado Gun Grabber recalls )

    DENVER—If Democrats were trying to put the calamitous Evie Hudak era behind them on Tuesday night, they didn’t quite succeed. A Democratic Party vacancy committee selected Arvada city councilwoman and Hudak associate Rachel Zenzinger to fill the vacancy left by Hudak’s eleventh-hour resignation last month in the face of a recall threat. Zenzinger’s position on hot-button issues like gun control remains to be seen, but in the short run she’s not going to make anyone forget about Hudak. Zenzinger served as Hudak’s campaign manager in the 2012 election and was reportedly Hudak’s choice for the vacancy. While ProgressNow Colorado praised...

    Remember that third recall effort out in Colorado, targeting two-term Democrat Evie Hudak? It is now moot. State Sen. Evie Hudak has decided to resign rather than risk facing a recall election that, should she lose, would flip control of the senate to Republicans, FOX31 Denver was first to report Wednesday. Later Wednesday morning, Hudak made her resignation letter public. “In the interest of preserving the progress made over the last year, I am resigning as State Senator for District 19, effective immediately,” Hudak wrote. By resigning before the signatures are turned in, she assures that a Democratic vacancy committee...

    A Democratic Colorado state senator resigned Wednesday to avoid a possible recall election over a controversial gun control law that led to the ouster of two of her colleagues earlier this year. Sen. Evie Hudak, who has represented a district that includes Denver’s western suburbs since 2008, announced her resignation less than a week before opponents planned to submit petitions to recall her. Calling the decision “difficult,” Hudak said she decided to resign to protect the new gun control legislation and to ensure her constituents would not have to pay for a special election.

    UPDATE: The rape survivors who testified against a bill that would ban concealed carry on college campuses and who were disrespected by Hudak in the process reacted to the news that Hudak had resigned: “I am pleased that the people of Senate District 19 put enough pressure on Senator Hudak to cause her to resign her Senate seat. Her treatment of me and other women in March demonstrated Senator Hudak’s belief that she knows better than the women of Colorado how they should best defend themselves. My sincere hope is that the Democrats consider, in their replacement choice, that the...

    After seeing two of her Colorado colleagues recalled over anti-gun votes, Democratic State Senator Evie Hudak, will submit her resignation. Hudak will hold a news conference Wednesday morning at the Arvada Library.

Proponents of the recall have until early next week to submit about 18,900 valid signatures to the secretary of state's office. If enough signatures are valid, Hudak would...

    The writing was on the wall. As the deadline approached, there seemed little doubt that the latest recall effort would gather the needed signatures to qualify for a vote. That left Centennial State Dems with two options: 1) let the vote happen and risk a third defeat along with the loss of control of the state senate or, 2) kick the social media maven to the curb, allowing Governor Hickenlooper to appoint another Democrat to the seat. Now, according to, they’ve chosen door number two . . . “By resigning I am protecting these important new laws for the...

    Democratic State Senator Evie Hudak is facing a second round of recall after voting for Mayor Bloomberg’s gun control bills, but sources tell us she has agreed to resign if the organizers seeking her recall get enough signatures. The scuttlebutt around the Capitol is that Hudak has agreed to resign her seat if enough signatures get verified to force a recall election, but we’ve been told a secret agreement allegedly made with Senate President Morgan Carroll comes with a few strings attached. If Hudak lost her recall election, it would hand power of the State Senate to Republicans. To stop...

    A renewed and spirited effort is underway to recall Sen. Evie Hudak, a Democrat from Westminster, less than six months after an initial effort faltered.

    Gun Control: As the Colorado legislature considers a ban on campus concealed carry, a woman testifying how she was raped in a "safe zone" 50 feet from a police station is told that armed defense is useless. It didn't receive quite as much media coverage as Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke's plea for free contraceptives before Congress but on Monday a young woman named Amanda Collins mustered the courage to testify before a Colorado legislative committee on that state's proposed gun ban legislation. Collins was raped at gunpoint in a University of Nevada-Reno parking garage in October 2007. Nevada law...

    Toronto Sun ^ | 2011-10-07 | Lorrie Goldstein
    Two words coined by a Sun colleague sum up the problem with the Progressive Conservative campaign in this election. Timid Hudak. PC Leader Tim Hudak seemed more frightened of losing than energized by the prospect of winning. Early polls showing him with a double-digit lead over Premier Dalton McGuinty spooked him. Hudak and his advisers wrongly believed they could cruise to victory by keeping a low profile and letting the public’s distrust of McGuinty do the rest. But McGuinty was a smart, tough campaigner, fighting his fourth election as Liberal leader, third as premier. And if voters were going to...
