LANSING (AP) - An effort to recall a state lawmaker from Lenawee County has failed after organizers missed the deadline to get petition signatures to the Michigan secretary of state.

State Representative Nancy Jenkins’ foes claim they had plenty of names to force a recall election in November, but the petitions didn’t get to Lansing by Friday.

Jenkins, who is a Republican from Clayton, said she was told that the person with the petitions suddenly had a family member in a car wreck and couldn’t drive to the Capitol. She said she’s praying for the family.

Recall leader Victoria Powell tells The Daily Telegram in Adrian that a “trusted person” didn’t submit the petitions.
