Idahoans for Responsible Education Reform, the group backing referendum measures on all three major school reform bills that passed this year, has announced it's nearly halfway to its goal of collecting 60,000 signatures on each of the three petitions. The required number is just under 48,000, but Mike Lanza, group chairman, said the 60,000 goal will allow a “cushion” to account for any signatures that can't be verified. “We are just shy of 30,000 of each of the three petitions,” Lanza said.

Question: What will be the impact politically in Idaho, if the referendum makes the ballot but organizers don't gather enough signatures to try to recall Superintendent Tom Luna?
