EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Those behind an effort to recall state Sen. Floyd Prozanski say they have gathered sufficient signatures to potentially spark a vote.

The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/zZDRGv) chief petitioner Patricia Duffy-Michaelson says she submitted about 8,700 signatures and plans to send in another batch by Friday’s deadline.

The campaign requires a total of 8,415 valid signatures to secure a recall vote for the Eugene Democrat. But the petitioners haven’t earned a victory yet as the signatures still need to be verified.

Prozanski was one of four Democratic lawmakers to face a recall attempt following the passage of an expansion of background checks on gun sales this year.

In a Register-Guard opinion piece published Wednesday, Prozanski said Duffy-Michaelson’s opposition to some of his votes didn’t merit “recalling an elected official.”
