Arizona: Senate adds new feature to recall bill -- mandating that recalled official be given slot in both primary and general recall

A very odd new provision in Arizona's propose recall law. Now, instead of just adding a primary, they are requiring that the official facing the recall be included on both the primary and general election ballots, even if they lose the primary. The sponsor claims that the Constitution requires that the elected official be included in the final ballot of the recall. It's not clear on what line they would be featured, but they are certainly being granted two bites of the apple here.
