Arizona: Senate moves to add primaries to recall process

Arizona lawmakers are proposing an interesting twist to their recall -- they are looking to eliminate the nonpartisan recall (it's basically an all-in, Jungle primary scenario, without the run-off) and mandate a partisan primary. In other words, they would move to what Wisconsin uses. In terms of changes, this is certainly a limited one.

The Republicans feel, with strong justification, that Russell Pearce would have survived the recall vote if Jerry Lewis faced him in a primary or if Lewis had to run as a Democrat.
