An Arizona woman who filed an application to launch a recall campaign against Gov. Jan Brewer says it’s a grass-roots effort but one that may require use of paid circulators to force a recall election.

Tommi “Mimi” Pryor of Chandler acknowledges that the effort faces an uphill climb but she notes that California had a governor ousted in a recall election in 2003.

Pryor says she’s a Republican who works in marketing. She declined to disclose specifics of the campaign but says talks are under way regarding financing and potential backing.

The application filed Friday cites budget cuts to health care, education and other services.

Supporters must file 432,021 signatures of voters by May 28 to force a recall election.
