SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Opponents of Oregon Senate President Peter Courtney failed to gather enough valid signatures to force a recall election.

Backers of the recall had until Monday to obtain 4,533 signatures from registered voters in Courtney’s district, which includes Woodburn and part of Salem. Matt Geiger of Woodburn tells The Oregonian/OregonLive (https://is.gd/XXMPUm ) that he and other supporters decided not to submit any signatures once it became apparent they would fall short.

Courtney has spent more than 30 years in the Oregon Legislature. He was re-elected in 2014.
