Another Republican candidate hoping to get elected to the Arizona Corporation Commission has fallen short due to the Arizona Supreme Court reversing a lower court’s decision on her nominating petitions.

Kim Owens, an executive for Gordon C. James Public Relations, originally won her trial court challenge by a mere eight signatures, but after not submitting evidence to support signatures county recorders ruled invalid that Owens thought should be reversed, the high court ruled against her. 

The only evidence offered by Owens to rehabilitate the signatures that were invalidated because the signer was not registered to vote was the ‘GOP Data Center’ records,” a panel of four justices wrote. “However, Owens failed to make the Data Center records available, nor were the records offered or received into evidence.”
