Campaigners for the recall of Portland Mayor Sam Adams have until this afternoon to submit the 32,185 signatures needed to force an election – a number they are not sure they will reach.

“It’s definitely going to be down to the wire,” says organizer Jasun Wurster, who claims that many recall petitions have arrived back at the campaign headquarters in recent days.

Wurster says that petitions with around 4,000 signatures reached the office on Saturday, but he will not release total figures.
