One of two efforts to recall Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce has called it quits, claiming the other group is on the brink of collecting enough signatures.

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.
