Nevada: State Senator targeted in recall effort

State Senator Joyce Woodhouse (D) is facing a recall effort led by former Republican Assemblyman Stephen Silberkraus (who was the target of a failed recall effort himself). There is no reason given for the recall effort, though there's now a claim that it is about Woodhouse's support for a so-called sanctuary city bill (the GOP has called the bill that). Woodhouse won reelection in 2016 by 469 votes.

Petitioners would need 14412 signatures from voters who voted in the 2016 election by October 31 to get on the ballot.
