Chad Campbell recall, Arizona House of Representatives (2013)
Conservative group Fire Representative Chad Campbell is the group targeting Campbell for recall, with one of their supporters citing gun control as a reason for this campaign. "The Second Amendment issues that he has promoted at the state capital are ridiculous and we won't stand for it anymore," said Bob Thomas, a former candidate for the Arizona State Senate. Campbell, however, believes there is more to it than that. "The group behind this is a very radical right group of Tea Party extremists -- very large dollar special interests ... I think they're going after me for promoting the things that we've been trying to do, which again..better schools, creating jobs, fighting for medicaid..all of those things."
