Arizona: Threats to force recall against John McCain

The founder and chairman of the Original North Phoenix Tea Party is threatening a recall  against U.S. Senator John McCain for McCain's defense of Huma Abedin, Hilary Clinton's aide (and Anthony Weiner's wife).  

Unless there is a surprise US Supreme Court decision, there are no enforceable recalls against federal officials. However:

state law allows federal elected officials to file statements with the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office pledging to resign if they lose a recall election, and McCain has filed such a statement.
Despite that pledge, I wonder if Arizona will actually allow such a recall to get on the ballot.
