Colorado anti-gun state Senator Evie Hudak (D) abruptly resigns her seat. #recall

Gun control activists cannot protect their own.

Because gun control activists cannot protect their own.

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 is first to report Wednesday.

Hudak is expected to make the official announcement with a press release sometime Wednesday morning.

Hudak, D-Westminster, could have been the third Democratic lawmaker to face a recall over a package of gun control bills they helped pass earlier this year.

Simple as that.  The first two Democrats thought that they could win their recalls, which is why they stayed and fought it out rather than resign (as Hudak will) and have another Democrat appointed to the seat until the next election.  They thought that… and then they lost.  Because gun control activists cannot protect their own. Democratic politicians follow the lead of Mike Bloomberg and the rest of his anti-gun zealots at their absolute peril.

I really can’t stress enough how much of a headlong run this looks like, by the way: Hudak broke and ran even before it was confirmed that she’d be subject to a recall election.  Although I suppose that we can now pretty much confirm that she herself expected to actually lose it.  I would suggest that the rest of the Colorado legislature take, as they say, the hint.
