Arizona illegal immigration law sponsor faces recall
The chief sponsor of Arizona's controversial anti-illegal immigration law SB1070 will likely face a recall election, according to news reports.

State Senate President Russell Pearce, who is well known for his stance against illegal immigration, will face a recall election in November after Maricopa County officials certified that petitioners gathered more than enough valid signatures to force a special vote, according to FoxNews.com and the Associated Press.
