Thanks for those updates.  When this list was started in January, Forese had not yet filed to run for ACC although he was talking about it.  We could find no listing under the name Wenninger on the AZSOS site so if you have a file # we'd add him to the list.  Looking back through the notices of filings we get from the aZSOS office, we can find no Wenninger.  Perhaps the spelling is incorrect?

As to those "thought to be conservative," that is from vetting, voting records, activists in those districts and other sources.  "Conservative" is subjective but for the purposes of AFA, we accept the info we get from other conservative grassroots activists who are contributors to AFA.  

And this is a work in progress and will be until the filing deadline has passed.

Additional Correction: Steve Yarbrough is not in the House, but only in the Senate.

Comment by Angi Stamm on April 2, 2014 at 11:20am

Correction:  Tom Forese is NOT running in LD17 for the State House he is only running for Arizona Corporation Commission.  However, JD Mesnard an incumbent is running for LD17 for the State House and Jeff Wenninger a Republican and Chandler City Councilman is running for Tom Foreses vacated position. How was it determined who is a "Known Conservative"?   Angi Stamm LD17 2nd VC

Comment by Angie Anderson on March 30, 2014 at 5:15pm

After meeting Treasurer candidate Jeff Dewit, we give him our strong support. Because his last name has only one "T", he claims he can save the state money on INK!
