CD8 Special Election Technical Difficulties

Posted By on Thu, Feb 16, 2012 at 1:00 PM

The Congressional District 8 special election was already a time crunch for the candidates who want to replace Gabrielle Giffords, who resigned last month to focus on her recovery from being shot through the head last year.

They need to have their nominating petitions delivered to the Arizona Secretary of State's Office by Monday, Feb. 27.

But we hear the candidates—Republicans Jesse Kelly, Frank Antenori, Dave Sitton, Martha McSally and John Lervold and Democrat Ron Barber—got bad news earlier this week from Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who told them that the petitions they were having people sign had a significant flaw: They had to include the date that the term ended as well as the usual boilerplate language.

That means a big do-over for candidates who got an early start on the campaign trail.
