Republicans escalated their fight against Assembly Speaker Doris Allen on Tuesday as a coalition of GOP county chairmen announced their support for a recall of the embattled lawmaker, and two allies abandoned her. Support of the recall by the GOP County Chairmen's Assn. boosted the effort to dethrone Allen (R-Cypress), who ascended to the speakership last week with the backing of the Assembly's 39 Democrats.
