Alaska: Petitioners claim 30% of signatures in the Governor recall effort

Petitioners have announced that they've collected 30% of the signatures (21,678) needed to get the recall of Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy (R) on the ballot.

The recall is still waiting for the Supreme Court to weigh in on whether it can meet the malfeasance standard needed to get on the ballot.

If the court allows the recall, petitioners would need 71,252 signatures to get to the ballot. Note that of the 49,006 signatures that they've already received, a third were by Democrats. If Dunleavy were recalled, there would not be a replacement race. Instead, the Lieutenant Governor (a Republican) would automatically be moved up to Governor.
