An effort to recall Chad Campbell, a member of the Democratic Party, from his elected position representing District 24 in the Arizona House of Representatives was launched on March 13, 2013.[1] Supporters of the recall need to collect 23,000 signatures by July 10 in order to force a recall election.[2]

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.[3] 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."[1]
