Three Democrats, two Republicans, write-in candidate advance in Corporation Commission primary

By Dillon Rosenblatt | Arizona Capitol Times

All five candidates seeking a seat on the Arizona Corporation Commission advanced to the November election, as expected, and a Republican write-in candidate will join them. 

There are three seats open this election cycle and only one incumbent in Lea Marquez Peterson, a Republican. Fellow commissioners Bob Burns, the chair, reaches the end of his term limit this year and Boyd Dunn failed to qualify for the ballot after his petition signatures were challenged in court. 

Joining Marquez Peterson on the Republican ticket is Eric Sloan, who was fired from the Arizona Department of Gaming for singing slavery-related songs when he passed the desk of Black co-workers, among other harassment claims.
