Hudak will hold a news conference Wednesday morning at the Arvada Library.
"By resigning I am protecting these important new laws for the good of Colorado and ensuring that we can continue looking forward," Hudak wrote in her resignation letter in regard to her gun votes, which led to the recall effort.
Proponents of the recall have until early next week to submit about 18,900 valid signatures to the secretary of state's office. If enough signatures are valid, Hudak would be the third Colorado lawmaker to face a recall election this year because of her support for tougher gun laws.

Despite popular American nostalgia that the first Thanksgiving was held by the Pilgrims after the arrival of the Mayflower at Plymouth Rock, it actually had its English beginnings along the James River at present-day Berkley Plantation in Charles City County, Virginia.
The year was 1619, twelve years after the establishment of Jamestown, when a group of thirty-eight settlers aboard the ship Margaret arrived after having made a ten-week journey across the Atlantic. Upon their landing, they knelt and prayed on the rich Tidewater soil, with their Captain John Woodlief proclaiming:“Wee ordaine that the day of our ships arrivall at the place assigned for plantacion in the land of Virginia shall be yearly and perpetually keept holy as a day of thanksgiving to Almighty God.”As historically recorded, this event was a first English Thanksgiving in the New World.
Thanksgiving is not just an American holiday. It is a Christian holiday.
Beginning on December 4, 1619, Berkeley Plantation (Charles City, VA), celebrated an annual thanksgiving to God on the anniversary of their safe arrival in the New World.
The 1621 Pilgrim Thanksgiving in Massachusetts was a time of thanks giving to God. Governor William Bradford proclaimed the month of November to be dedicated to "Thanksgiving unto the Lord." Bradford wrote in his diary that their voyage and settlement was motivated by "a great hope for advancing the Kingdom of God."
In 1623, after a severe drought that ended at the conclusion of a colony-wide day of prayer and fasting, Bradford proclaimed another Thanksgiving - the Thanksgiving most Americans picture:In as much as the great Father has given us this year an abundant harvest of Indian corn, wheat, peas, beans, squashes, and garden vegetable, and has made the forests to abound with game and the sea with fish and clams, and inasmuch as he has protected us from the ravages of the savages, has spared us from pestilence and disease, has granted us freedom to worship God according to the dictates of our own conscience; now I, your magistrate, do proclaim that all ye Pilgrims, with your wives and ye little ones, do gather at ye meeting house, on ye hill, between the hours of 9 and 12 in the day time, on Thursday, November ye 29th, of the year of our Lord one thousand six hundred and twenty-three, and the third year since ye Pilgrims landed on ye Pilgrim Rock, there to listen to ye pastor and render thanksgiving to ye Almighty God for all His blessings. William Bradford, Ye Governor of Ye Colony.Thanksgiving is not just an American holiday. It is a Christian holiday.
On December 18, 1777, at the recommendation of Henry Laurens, President of the Continental Congress, the Thirteen Colonies celebrated Thanksgiving to God for their victory at Saratoga.
George Washington declared a National Thanksgiving Day November 26, 1789, to thank God for the New Nation.
Celebrations of “thanksgiving” would become a deeply rooted American tradition, usually brought on by periods of great hardship.
During the American Revolution, the Continental Congress proclaimed days of Thanksgiving every year from 1777 to 1784. Likewise, George Washington issued the first Presidential proclamation of Thanksgiving in 1789, and a few of his successors followed suit. Interestingly, Thanksgiving was not a specific day or even month, and apparently was issued on the whim of whoever was in office. Sporadically between the years 1789 and 1815, days of Thanksgiving were recognized in January, March, April, October, and November. This recognition of Thanksgiving ended in 1815 following the term of President James Madison, and a President would not issue such a proclamation for another forty-six years.
After nearly 150 years, a battle for the honor and heritage of Confederate soldiers who can no longer defend themselves, has seen an overwhelming victory! The long standing dispute began by a black domestic terrorist at live Oak cemetery in Selma over a year ago has been settled in favor of KTK mining and the UDC. The Selma City Council met on Tuesday Nov. 26, 2013 and voted 5 to 3 to accept the settlement offer put forth by KTK mining in it's entirety.
Among other things, the settlement requires the city of Selma to issue a deed to the UDC givng them title to the property in Live Oak Cemetery known as "Confederate Circle" This property was given to the Ladies Memorial Association ( the forerunner to the UDC) by the Selma City Council way back in the late 1800s, but a deed was never issued. The settlement also calls for the City to re-issue a building permit to KTK mining so that the company can resume work, and complete an upgrade to Confederate Circle which was heinously disrupted by a group of black domestic terrorists led by the infamous Rose Sanders, over a year ago.
An ugly episode in human stupidity has now been righted, and the honor and integrity of our Confederate ancestors who lie buried in Confederate Circle will be upheld for future generations of the sons and daughters of the South to pay their respects to. The beautiful life-sized bust of the great General, Nathan Bedford Forrest will be replaced as a tribute to the last defender of Selma during the late unpleasantness. Please forward to all Confederate lists copiously......God is good!
Yours for Southern Honor,
