California senator recall organizers have enough signatures

Three counties have received enough valid signatures to trigger a recall election that could remove a Southern California senator from office and end a Democratic supermajority in the California Legislature, according to counts released Friday.

Reports filed by Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties show the organizers submitted more than the 63,593 valid signatures required to recall Newman, with more still to count.
