Oregon: Petitioners claim to be close to Governor recall signatures; deadline is October 14

Petitioners have until Monday to handed in signatures for the recall of Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D). They claim they are close to the 280,050 needed to get the recall on the ballot.

Note that being close to 280,050 would almost certainly not be enough. The lowest signature rejection rate I've seen is 6% in a Colorado Senate race. Generally, it can range from 15-40%, so they almost certainly need over 300,000 to get on the ballot.

There is also a significant issue over who would replace Brown that has not been decided.
