AZ State Senator Russell Pearce to be subject of recall election
In Arizona, signatures will be turned in today to launch a recall of Senate President Russell Pearce, the architect of SB 1070, Arizona’s signature immigration bill. If successful, it will be the first time in Arizona history that a state senator lost a recall election. It would also mark the first time in U.S. history that a state senate president was recalled.
Getting the signatures turned in, however, is just the beginning as Pearce represents a solid Republican district. Pearce says he takes the recall seriously, but also notes the recall seems like more of a referendum on the statewide issue of immigration than it does on him personally.
