Frank Riggs, a former Republican congressman from northern California, is going to try his hand at running for elected office in Arizona with a campaign for governor.
Riggs, 63, said he planned to file paperwork for an exploratory committee on Wednesday afternoon. The former congressman said he considered running against then-Gov. Janet Napolitano in 2006 until learning that he fell short of the five-year residency requirement to run for the office.
“I’m definitely running. I’ve made that commitment to a core group of very good people,” Riggs said.
