Looks Like Huppental Has A Race (Actually Two Races) On His Hands

Posted By on Mon, May 19, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Today David Garcia, Democratic candidate for AZ Ed Supe, filed his signatures to get on the ballot.

Dr. David Garcia, candidate for Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction, officially filed his nominating petition signatures this morning.

Dr. Garcia and team turned in over 8,000 signatures, far surpassing the 4,804 signatures required to make the ballot.

Thanking his volunteers for their hard work, Dr. Garcia stated, “With more than 400 volunteers already signed on in support, we are poised to run one of the largest grassroots campaigns in the state. I’m looking forward to an exciting summer of voter outreach and numerous candidate debates.”

Dr. Garcia is an Associate Professor at ASU and the former Associate Superintendent of Public Instruction for Standards and Accountability. He is widely regarded as a national expert on education policy and research.

On Hupp's right flank, his Republican opponent, Diane Douglas, submitted her petitions as well. We'll get a chance to see if Hupp does the political hokey pokey in the primary ("You put your right foot in, and you shake it all about"). Douglas is way to his right, especially in her condemnation of Common Core. Will he call Douglas a "barbarian at the gate" during the campaign, or will he try and play nice with the right wing voters who hate the Common Core and vote way beyond their numbers in the primary?
