Even though it has been only a couple of weeks since nominating petition were due, but there are already a number of withdrawals and challenges to report.
The full list of Congressional and state-level primary candidate challenges, from the AZ Secretary of State, is here; the list of candidates who have already withdrawn is here.
One name of a challenged candidate that is not on the list is that of Doug Quelland, because he is facing a challenge that is based on alleged campaign finance violations, not alleged nomination irregularities. Quelland was removed from the state legislature because of Clean Elections-related campaign finance. The Republican-turned-Independent is running for state senate in the new LD20, and the Republican establishment there is not amused. Hence the challenge.
Note: all challenges will be heard in Maricopa County Superior Court.
The nomination challenges include:
John Allen State House LD 15: Republican Nomination
Kim Allen State Senate LD 11: Libertarian Nomination
George H. Benavides Sr. State House LD 20: Republican Nomination
Sheila Bilyeu U.S. Senate: Libertarian Nomination
Jean Cheuvront-McDermott State House LD 24: Democratic Nomination
Joe Cobb U.S. House CD 7: Libertarian Nomination
Doug Coleman State House LD 16: Republican Nomination
Rich Crandall State Senate LD 16: Republican Nomination
Jeff Davis State House LD 16: Republican Nomination
Rebecca DeWitt U.S. House CD 7: Democratic Nomination
Dean Dill State House LD 8: Libertarian Nomination
Toby Farmer State House LD 13: Republican Nomination
James Iannuzo State Senate LD 28: Libertarian Nomination
Gaither Martin U.S. House CD 1: Republican Nomination
Anthony Prowell U.S. House CD 1: Libertarian Nomination
Raquel Teran State Senate LD 30: Democratic Nomination
The list of Maricopa County candidates, including withdrawals/removals, is here. A few candidates have already withdrawn
I can't find a list of challenges on the county recorder's website, but the highest-profile challenge is the one challenging Mike Stauffer. He is a former Republican who is running as an Independent for Maricopa County Sheriff.
More as the cases are decided...
