Russell Pearce, the Arizona legislator responsible for the state's controversial S.B. 1070 immigration law lost his seat in a recall election. Pearce was seen as the most powerful and influential lawmaker in Arizona politics, even more so than Arizona Governor, Jan Brewer.

We discuss what happens next and if Pearce's recall is a warning to other conservative lawmakers.
