A Republican candidate for a seat on the Arizona Corporation Commission can remain on the election ballot, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.. Eric Sloan will be on the primary election ballot in August. The court affirmed the trial court’s ruling that Mary Halford challenged a batch of signatures, but did not properly specify the basis for removal of many of them. The complaint had indicated that they were “wrong voter street address”.
Two appeals against GOP Corporation Commission candidates remain for the Supreme Court to decide, against current Commissioner Boyd Dunn and candidate Kim Owens. David Farnsworth withdrew his candidacy after being challenged, and Nick Myers was removed by a judge.
