A third Democratic Colorado state senator facing possible recall after voting for gun-control measures says she will resign.

Sen. Evie Hudak of Denver's western suburbs announced her resignation Wednesday, less than a week before opponents planned to turn in petitions seeking her recall. The resignation means Democrats will appoint an interim successor and keep a one-seat majority in the Senate next session.

Two other Democratic senators were ousted from office in September, Sens. John Morse of Colorado Springs and Angela Giron of Pueblo.

The recall efforts came after Colorado's Democratic Legislature and governor last year approved a slate of gun-control measures including ammunition magazine limits and expanded background checks. The limits were the first adopted outside the East Coast after the Sandy Hook shootings.
