A wealthy businessman not well known in — or out — of political circles is considering challenging Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan in next year’s Republican primary election.

For weeks, political insiders have buzzed about who might run against Reagan for the GOP nomination after her prior opponent, state Sen. Steve Montenegro, R-Litchfield Park, dropped out to run for Congress.

Some have speculated that a politically unknown candidate with deep pockets could be eyeing the race.

That candidate appears to be Steve Gaynor, a Paradise Valley resident who owns an investment firm and printing business. On Thursday, his political strategist, Brian Seitchick, confirmed that Gaynor is considering a run.
