Scott Smith Jumps Into the Gubernatorial Pool

Posted By on Thu, Jan 9, 2014 at 11:00 AM

This year's race for governor got a little more interesting this morning, when Mesa Mayor Scott Smith filed his paperwork for an exploratory campaign.

Smith, who has to go the exploratory route until he decides he wants to resign the mayor's seat, is generally seen as a moderate Republican, which sets him apart from the current crop of GOP contenders, which includes Arizona Treasurer Doug Ducey, Secretary of State Ken Bennett, attorney Christine Jones, disbarred attorney Andrew Thomas and state Sen. Al Melvin. There's plenty of room to run to the left of that crowd, although whether it pays to do so in a GOP primary remains to be seen.
