Wade McLean in Legislative District 26?

Posted By on Mon, Apr 12, 2010 at 2:43 PM

We hear that Wade McLean, the former superintendent of the Marana School District, is considering a run for the Arizona House of Representatives in Legislative District 26, which stretches from the Catalina Foothills up through Oro Valley and into Saddlebrooke.

District 26 is one of Arizona’s few swing districts that’s gone bipartisan in recent years: Republican Vic Williams and Democrat Nancy Young Wright serve in the Arizona House of Representatives.

Wright is the only Democrat running in LD26 this year. Williams is also seeking reelection, with Republican Terri Proud, a young conservative mom, seeking the second seat for the GOP team.

McLean has good name ID in the district; they’ve even named a pool after him at Marana High. The debates promise to be fun if he gets into the race.
