GOP rival blasts Secretary of State Reagan over Trump commission’s voter-data request

Dan Barr, a media lawyer who specializes in public-records cases, said there’s no requirement in Arizona law that anyone use a specific form to request records

Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan continues to take flak for her changing stance on the Trump administration’s request for voter information — this time from her GOP primary rival.

State Sen. Steve Montenegro, R-Goodyear, skewered Reagan this week for denying a request from President Donald Trump’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. The commission has requested extensive voter information from every state.

“Her stance is the same as a Democrat’s,” Montenegro said on Wednesday. “It’s obvious she doesn’t like President Trump and she’s working against him.”

Montenegro, who is running against Reagan for the 2018 Republican nomination for secretary of state, is referring to her July 3 decision to reject the commission’s initial request for voter information.

But Reagan’s stance on the issue keeps evolving. Her camp said and she’s open to providing information to the commission as long as it follows the office’s procedures for acquiring public records.
