Pima County GOP Now Seeks Write-In Candidate for Mayor

Posted By on Tue, Jun 21, 2011 at 3:13 PM

Attorney Bill Risner is doing his best this afternoon to put a stake in Republican Shaun McClusky's mayoral campaign to prevent any chance of McClusky running as a write-in candidate.

That would leave Republicans with no candidate for mayor—and that, in turn, would hurt the electoral chances of the GOP City Council candidates Tyler Vogt (who is challenging incumbent Democrat Shirley Scott in southeast Ward 4) and Jennifer Rawson (who is challenging incumbent Democrat Paul Cunningham in northeast Ward 2). The Pima County Republican Party needs a minimum of three candidates in order to legally run "slate pieces" that promote the GOP candidates and provide other campaign support.

Sam Stone, spokesman for the Pima County GOP, tells us that a few people are considering launching write-in campaigns, although he declined to share any names. Any candidate would need to get at least 1,060 votes in the August primary to have his/her name on the November ballot.
