Fighting Words in the Antenori-Camenisch Race

Posted By on Mon, Sep 20, 2010 at 8:33 AM

Democrat Todd Camenisch complained last week that state Sen. Frank Antenori was avoiding debates with him after the League of Women Voters canceled a Sierra Vista event when the group didn’t hear back from the Republican lawmaker.

“I’m quite surprised,” Camenisch says, “but I guess Frank realizes that a Marine can kick an Army guy's ass any day.”

But Antenori, a retired Army special-forces soldier who now works as a project manager for Raytheon, says he not dodging anyone; he just had a fundraising event planned with his fellow GOP candidates on the day of the proposed forum with Camenisch.

“I’m out raising enough money to bury him like a freaking fish in the backyard,” Antenori says.

Antenori says he's looking forward to three debates with his Democratic challenger.

We'll have more on the race in this week's print edition.
