"This recall election would undermine our efforts in the governor’s race, the U.S. Senate race and to win a Senate majority if voters perceive that Republicans are trying to win a majority through recalls."

Call's comments come after state activists announced plans to try and recall Democratic state Sen. Evie Hudak, who had previously been targeted in recall efforts over passing new gun control legislation. Hudak and three other Democratic lawmakers had been targeted for recall but only two of the four lawmakers were successfully recalled.

If Hudak is removed from office, the control of the state Senate will move to the GOP. Right now Democrats have a one-seat majority in the chamber, 18-17.
