Colorado Lawmaker Facing Recall Quits Instead

Colorado state Sen. Evie Hudak (D) "has decided to resign rather than risk facing a recall election that, should she lose, would flip control of the senate to Republicans," KDVF-TV reports.

"Instead of going all-in and risking a Republican takeover of the senate in the early months of a midterm election year, Hudak is playing it safe. By resigning before the signatures are turned in, she assures that a Democratic vacancy committee will appoint her replacement, keeping the seat -- and the senate -- in the party's hands, at least through November, when her successor will be forced to win reelection."
