Ward 5 Televised Debate Tonight

Posted By on Tue, Aug 11, 2009 at 10:51 AM

You probably haven’t noticed, but there’s a Republican primary underway in southside Ward 5, where Democrat Steve Leal is stepping down from the Tucson City Council after two decades in office.

Political rookies Judith Gomez and Shaun McClusky are squaring off in the Sept. 1 primary. The winner will face Democrat Richard Fimbres in the November general election.

There are roughly 3,800 registered Republicans in Ward 5, according to the Pima County Recorder’s Web site, so the candidates don’t have many voters to contact. As of Aug. 9, 1,049 of the GOP voters had requested early ballots. Of those, 292 had sent their ballots back in.

Gomez and McClusky have what’s likely to be their only televised debate tonight on KUAT-TV’s Arizona Illustrated with anchor Bill Buckmaster and your truly. Get a look at the candidates at 6:30 p.m. on Channel 6.
