LD28: GOP's Krino Lands Spot on November Ballot

Posted By on Wed, Aug 25, 2010 at 12:30 PM

It looks like Republican Greg Krino, a write-in candidate for state Senate in Legislative District 28, has made the ballot.

More than 1,300 write-in votes were cast in the Republican primary in the midtown Tucson district. Krino only needed 214 votes to make the ballot.

Ordinarily, Democrats would have little reason to worry about defending the seat, now held by state Sen. Paula Aboud, because they hold a big voter-registration edge over the GOP. But this year, former Democratic state lawmaker Ted Downing is running as an independent, as is Green Party activist Dave Ewoldt.

If the two left-leaning candidates siphon votes from Aboud, the GOP has a chance to pick up a Democratic seat in November.
