The recall effort against Sen. Chuck Thomsen has failed. Chief petitioner Lara Dunn of Hood River said Monday said COVID restrictions impeded efforts to gather enough signatures by the June 2 deadline. She said signature gatherers collected 2,600 signatures in just a few short weeks.

“We were on track to gather the required 9,025 signatures, well ahead of the June 2 deadline,” Dunn said. “However, because of the restrictions required to keep Oregonians safe during the COVID-19 crisis, in-person signature gathering had to stop abruptly, and it became impossible to maintain our pace."
