Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/11/08
Republican Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce faces a recall election. Pearce is best known for being the architect of Arizona’s immigration law.
In Arizona, Republican state Sen. Russell Pearce, architect of the immigration law that thrust the issue into the national political debate, faces a recall that could throw him out of office. The Republican attempting to defeat him has made immigration a constant theme, but Pearce has a 3-to-1 fundraising advantage.
As of 9:05pm local time, the SEIU-backed Jerry Lewis has apparently defeated Russell Pearce. With all 16 precincts reporting, Jerry Lewis gained 10,816 votes for 53 percent of the vote to Russel Pearce’s 9,188 votes for 45 percent of the vote.
