Arizonans for a Better Government is the group that ended its efforts.
The group says Citizens for a Better Arizona is within a few hundred of the 7,756 signatures required for a recall election in legislative district 18.
The deadline to submit signatures is May 31.
The East Valley Tribune says the Citizens for a Better Arizona group has been seeking signatures from Pearce’s main supporters and that includes Republican and Mormon voters.
The recall effort began in January.
