Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-  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, so I 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.

To sign the petition for recall, McAlpine said you have to be registered to vote in Colorado’s Senate District 19, which is Westminster and Arvada. The main petition is located in a central office at 11651 West 64th Ave, Arvada, CO, 80004. However, the recall effort has also placed people all over Arvada with bright yellow t-shirts and signs who are politely asking for signatures.

He referred to these volunteers as “sign and drives” and said citizens can flag one of these individuals down, and they will come to your car to let you sign the petition.

Although the ability to sign the petition is reserved only to those registered to vote in district 19, McAlpine stressed that anyone from anywhere can volunteer to help with the recall effort and anybody can donate as well.

Donations for the recall effort can be given through the website, RecallHudakToo.com.

Not to nitpick here but our rights were given to us by GOD and affirmed by men in writing. As far as the recall goes, this is the consequence in a free society when any elected official goes against the will of those he represents in order to advance his own or his parties agenda and/or ideology, rather than representing his constituency. It is incumbent upon any democrat or republican to know the wishes of those he represents and act accordingly. If you can do that, you will have no reason to fear any recall attempt. If you think you… Read more »

I think the key words here should be, instead of “have been democrats,” but ” had been democrats!”
