Governor John Hickenlooper conducted an interview with USA Today where he discussed the recalls of State Senators Morse and Giron as well as the potential third recall of State Senator Hudak.

Organizers believe they can get the required signatures to force an election even though a prior attempt - at the same time as the other recalls - failed.
