Tuesday marks the deadline for one group looking to force a recall election of state Sen. President Russell Pearce. The group needs thousands of valid signatures from Mesa residents in order to move the recall effort forward.
Organizers with the Citizens for a Better Arizona believe they not only have enough signatures, they’re going for a kind of end zone spike symbolic victory as well.
The activists will turn in all of their signatures to the state for verification in order to force a special election.
The group needs just over 7,700 valid signatures, but they’re hoping to get 17,553, because that’s one more than the number of votes Pearce received in last November’s election.
