The Coalition to Recall Diane Douglas gathered “fewer than 10 percent of the signatures realistically needed to force an election,” reports Capitol Media Services.
The group had 90 days to circulate petitions and gather signatures.
The group needed to average the collection of over 3000 signatures a day. With less than 100,000 signatures in their possession, as of Tuesday, they would now have to collect approximately 10,000 signatures a day to meet their goal.
Douglas has ignored the recall effort, and plowed ahead to keep her promise to eliminate Common Core standards in Arizona. She won support for her effort when a majority of the State Board of Education voted 6-2 to sever Arizona’s ties to the Common Core standards in late October.
The recall effort, lead by American Red Cross employee, Max Goshert, began before Douglas was sworn into office. The effort began primarily from disgruntled supporters of her General Election opponent, David Garcia.
