- On December 5, 1995, Horcher changed his party affiliation from Republican to Independent.
- A staffer with 30 years of Capitol experience remembered; "The day after the recall, I came to work before 9 am and there was virtually no evidence that Paul Horcher had ever even been in the Capitol. His name was removed from every roster - it was as if he evaporated."
- In 1994, Horcher was the target of a recall led by Timothy J. Vrieling, and 59 others. The recall qualified for the ballot and succeeded (61.63% in favor; 38.37% opposed).
