From the Sacramento Bee :

The proponents of the recall of Sen. Jeff Denham announced turning in 50,000 signatures to unseat the Central Valley Republican on Friday - a move that is likely to set off a bitter and expensive campaign.

The Bee explains why this move is significant:

Denham's district is one of only a handful in the state that aren't solidly in the camp of either Democrats or Republicans. While Democrats hold a strong majority - 25 of 40 seats - in the Senate, they need 27 votes to pass certain key legislation, such as the budget.
