Arizona Progress & Gazette
Scottsdale’s first mayoral debate earlier this week was a mundane affair. But it did reinforce a central tenant in the race: there are two lanes to the November run-off.
Gaining an outright win in August is highly improbable for any candidate. That means two will move on to an election in November.
How is this likely to take shape?
Think back to the Democratic Party’s primaries earlier this year. There was the oft discussed progressive lane led by Bernie Sanders and a moderate one that eventually coalesced around Joe Biden.
