DENVER — 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 was first to report Wednesday.

Later Wednesday morning, Hudak made her resignation letter public.

"In the interest of preserving the progress made over the last year, I am resigning as State Senator for District 19, effective immediately," Hudak wrote.
