CD8: Paton Doesn't Snag Olson's Endorsement

Posted By on Thu, Aug 12, 2010 at 9:43 AM

When Republican Brian Miller withdrew from the race last night, former UA basketball coach Lute Olson was on hand to say a few words.

"Brian is going to continue working toward goals he feels are critical," said Olson, who had endorsed Miller earlier in the campaign and appeared in a campaign ad with him. "I'm looking forward to things that are going to happen in the future."

As Olson was leaving, The Range caught up with him to ask if he was endorsing Republican CD8 candidate Jonathan Paton, as Miller had. Olson told us he hadn't decided which candidate would have his support yet.

Paton is aware that Miller's supporters aren't necessarily going to come over to his side.

"I have to earn your vote," Paton told the crowd last night.

But he reached out to them by promising to support legislation auditing the Federal Reserve.

Paton has also agreed to be grilled by Miller supporters at a Sunday get-together. For details on the event, contact Paton's campaign at 520-395-2024.

BTW: We'll be forever grateful to Miller for the following campaign ad, which we just loved.
