Petitions have been handed in for the recall of Arizona Majority Leader Russell Pearce. The organizers claim that they have more than double the amount of signatures need. The tried, and apparently succeeded, in gathering more signatures for the recall, 18,315, than votes Pearce received in the last election, 17,552.
I don't think this should be read as a statement on Pearce's chances. For reason I'll get to once my op-ed in the Arizona Capitol Times comes out, I think the Pearce recall is much different than the Wisconsin ones, in ways that are very beneficial to Pearce.
