California: Recall effort against Santa Clara Judge pushed till next spring

The recall effort against Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky is now being delayed until next year. Petitioners have announced that they will not try to get a recall on the ballot on November, but instead wait until the June 5, 2018 primary election.  The cost for a special in November is estimated to be $6.8 million, a vote on the 2018 primary day is estimated to be $576,000.

The recall is over the lenient sentence of a Stanford student/athlete for sexual assault. Petitioners would need 58,634 signatures. The recall leader claims that they have raised more than $350,000 for the effort.
