CD8 Special: Antenori vs. Kelly in the Race to Replace Giffords?

Posted By on Tue, Jan 24, 2012 at 7:37 PM

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' decision to step down from Congress this week has set up a great deal of buzz and speculation in political circles.

We're sure the final line-up is far from set, but we hear that both state Sen. Frank Antenori and Jesse Kelly, the 2010 GOP nominee who lost to Giffords, are oiling up their campaign machines.

John Ellinwood, a spokesman for Kelly, tells The Range that Kelly is "strongly leaning" toward getting into the race and has filed some paperwork with the FEC.

Meanwhile, we hear that Antenori is planning on announcing his plans to run this Friday.

Antenori and Kelly appeal to the same party base, which could open up an opportunity for a candidate that could appeal to a different wing of the GOP.
