A leader of a recall campaign targeting Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce says the effort may use all the time possible to collect voter signatures prior to a May 31 deadline to submit petitions.
The campaign had said a week ago that it might submit petitions early in order to have the recall election scheduled for November instead of March.
Citizens for a Better Arizona co-founder Randy Parraz now says the group may need every day possible to make the drive a success.
Parraz says the group collected 600 additional signatures over the weekend.
The group needs to submit 7,756 voter signatures to force a recall of Pearce. It said May 10 it had 7,200 validated signatures but wanted to submit a sizable cushion above the minimum.
