The anti-Hudak committee has until Dec. 3 to collect about 18,300 valid signatures on its petitions to force the special election. So far they’re using volunteers, a strategy that worked for Pueblo Freedom and Rights.

Ms. Hudak, who hails from Westminster, was the target of an earlier recall effort that petered out in April. She presents a juicy target for recallers, having infamously told a rape victim during a hearing on a bill that would ban concealed carry on campuses that, “Statistics are not on your side.”

“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,” said Ms. Hudak at the March hearing.
