Jan Brewer recall, Arizona (2012)
Randy Parraz, president of Citizens for a Better Arizona, spearheaded the recall effort. Citizens for a Better Arizona was also behind the recall of former Arizona state senator Russell Pearce. Leonard Clark also supported the recall of Brewer, and he took out recall paperwork on February 3rd, 2012.
Path to the ballot
Parraz said his group was seeking citizen input in order to assess the viability of a recall effort. To force a recall election, 424,021 signatures would have had to be turned in by June 2. Parraz said he would formally launch a recall campaign if 5,000 Arizona voters each committed to gathering at least 100 signatures. Clark's petition would have required 432,021 voter signatures by June 2nd.
