Pete Peterson, who waged a gubernatorial campaign against Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter using a "beat Butch" thong, has set his sights on Tom Luna again, testing the political waters for another possible recall effort to bounce the state superintendent of public instruction from office.
"We changed our 2012 Luna recall tactics," read a statement from Peterson, referring to the unsuccessful effort to garner 158,000 signatures to put a recall on last year's ballot. Only 50,000 valid signatures were collected.
Peterson said he has a plan to collect $30,000 to launch another statewide recall campaign, which could being on April 30.
Peterson said his effort may fail "for one of two reasons:
"People are too apathetic and defeated to get involved," or "I fail to make recallluna.com ubiquitous."
Peterson appeared to be confident, stating his intention to hold a noontime rally on Saturday, May 1, on the Statehouse steps.
