Spokesperson for successful recall campaigns says Hudak recall an “uphill climb”

(Promoted by Colorado Pols)

Political reporters should have noted that the spokeswoman for two recent recall-election campaigns in Colorado said Sunday that a new recall effort targeting Democratic State Sen. Evie Hudak is an "uphill climb."

Speaking on KNUS radio's Backbone Radio Sunday, Kerns said:

"…I think that's going to be an uphill climb to get [the 20,000 Hudak-recall signatures] qualified but, hey, I will not do what others did to us in the two recalls. I will not be a naysayer. And I do really wish them the best in qualifying that recall."

I hate it when someone's obviously a naysayer, and then they say they're not a naysayer.

That's the worse kind of naysayer, but probably the kind journalists should pay attention to, especially given Kerns' credibility of having been on the front lines, from start to finish, of both successful recall campaigns in Colorado.

Kerns also said:

Kerns: The district of Evie Hudak is much more metropolitan, in the Denver metropolitan area, as opposed to Colorado Springs and Pueblo. So you're going to have much more of that metropolitan Democrat Denver involvement…. A couple of other things I think they will find challenging in the Hudak recall is not only is that district more metropolitan Denver, but those 20,000 signatures are due Dec. 3, and we are quickly approaching Nov. 1.

Talk-Radio Host Matt Dunn: That's a lot.

Kerns: So they have 30 more days to get those.

Kerns: I think this one is going to be a little bit of a tougher climb than the first two recalls were. For example, more signatures will be required just to place this on the ballot.

Dunn: A lot more.

Kerns: A lot more, about 20,000 signatures required, just to qualify this for the ballot. That's not even including then the campaign that has to be run against her. So that, I think, is the first challenge. The district of Evie Hudak is much more metropolitan, in the Denver metropolitan area, as opposed to Colorado Springs and Pueblo. So you're going to have much more of that metropolitan Democrat Denver involvement…. A couple of other things I think they will find challenging in the Hudak recall is not only is that district more metropolitan Denver, but those 20,000 signatures are due Dec. 3, and we are quickly approaching Nov. 1.

Dunn: That's a lot.

Kerns: So they have 30 more days to get those. Now I know they're working hard. they're out there. They're on street corners. They're in shopping centers. They've got the support of groups like the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners. But I think that's going to be an uphill climb to get that qualified but, hey, I will not do what others did to us in the two recalls. I will not be a naysayer. And I do really wish them the best in qualifying that recall.\

    Nice. The woman who wants to market herself as a "Recalls R Us" expert is being cautiously pessimistic on the Hudak recall. I like it.

    I also wonder if she has any shame or qualms of conscience ever.

    Probably not.
