Two petitions to recall Gov. Kate Brown fall short

PORTLAND, Ore. - (Update: Second petition submitted, also lacks enough signatures; Oregon GOP statement)

SALEM, Ore. (AP) A pair of recall efforts by Republicans to oust Oregon's Democratic governor failed on Monday, with officials saying one lacked the necessary number of signatures and the other failing to submit any signatures to election officials.

"Since the deadline for submission of signatures for both recall petitions was 5 p.m. today, no further action will be taken on these petitions," Oregon Secretary of State Bev Clarno said in a statement.

Gov. Kate Brown beat her Republican challenger Knute Buehler by about 120,000 votes in 2018.

Her opponents launched the recall efforts, objecting to a greenhouse gas emissions cap-and-trade bill that she backed but failed to emerge from the Legislature, and an education tax package that did pass, among other issues.
