Recall backers say they’re close

Recall backers say they’re close

“Backers of the campaign to recall Democratic Gov. Gray Davis from office say they have collected nearly 900,000 signatures – the minimum needed to qualify for the ballot – and plan a victory celebration on July 4 in Orange County.”

If the recall qualifies by July, and it looks like it will, then the recall election will probably be held in the fall – bad news for Gray Davis.


Peter Camejo, who ran for California governor in 2002 as a Green, will announce on Monday he is running for Governor in the recall.


“Opponents of the move to recall Gov. Gray Davis are asking their supporters to intimidate signature gatherers and complain of harassment at stores where recall petitions are circulating.”
